West Pennsboro Township is one of eight municipalities who entered into an Inter-governmental Cooperation Agreement to provide garbage, solid waste, recycling, and bulk item collection. The current solid waste contract with Waste Management is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2021. The lowest acceptable bid was awarded to Apple Valley Waste Services for a 5-year term starting July 1, 2021. The new rates are as follows; Full Service (Trash Toter & Recycling Toter) = $55.75 per quarter, Senior Citizen Rate (65 years or older) (Trash Toter & Recycling Toter) = $49.75 per quarter, Recycling Only (Recycling Toter) = $43.50 per quarter, Bag Purchase = $5.00 per bag. Recycling is NOT included in the bag purchase. One weekly bulk pick-up with advanced notice will continue. Residents will receive brand new Apple Valley Trash Toters & Recycling Toters from the new company and the old ones will be collected. Quarterly billing will still be conducted by Southampton Township.
