Please see page 2 for information regarding the Borough’s new residential trash & recycling hauler, Republic Services, that affects Chalfont Borough residents only. (Just because you have your postal mailing address may contain “Chalfont, PA 18914” that doesn’t necessarily mean you are a Chalfont Borough resident – this information ONLY applies to Chalfont Borough residents.) Waste Management’s contract with Chalfont Borough is expiring and Republic Services will become the new residential trash & recycling hauler.
If you are a Borough resident and you received an invoice from Waste Management (WM) for the upcoming quarter, June 1 through Aug 31, do not pay that invoice because it was an error on WM’s part. WM will not be providing service into the next quarter because their contract is expiring. If you have auto-pay set up with WM, please log into your account and cancel it so you are no longer billed. If you already paid an invoice for the June 1 through Aug 31 billing period, contact WM for a refund.
The last trash pickup with WM will be on Friday morning, June 2nd. Put your WM trash & recycling toters curbside (even if they are empty) the night before and then leave them there. After WM empties them on the morning of June 2nd, they will send another truck around later that day or the next afternoon to permanently remove them.
Your first trash & recycling collection day with Republic Services will be on Tuesday, June 6th. Thereafter, TUESDAYS will be the new weekly trash & recycling pickup day in Chalfont Borough. Republic Services has told the Borough office that they will be mailing out invoices in the week or two following their toters being delivered. Please call the Borough office with any concerns. Please also be patient as staff works diligently to solve any issues that may arise during this transition period. Please refer to page 2 of the newsletter for more information: Spring 2023 Newsletter
