Due to the impacts of COVID-19 in Chester County, the Solid Waste Department will only be accepting household trash and recycling materials until further notice.
The operational changes are in an effort to prioritize household waste and recycling amidst the community impacts of the virus.
As of March 31, the Convenience Centers will NOT be accepting: furniture, trailer loads, construction materials from contractors and commercial haulers.
All Convenience Centers will be accepting: household trash and recycling.
Residential brush and metal will be accepted from households at the Main Center at 315 Talley Store Road, along with household trash and recycling.
In an effort to comply with social distancing guidance, the department is asking residents to comply with their social distancing measures at the centers; this includes allowing only one individual unloading on each side of the compactor at a time.
“We want to thank our residents for their patience and understanding during this time. Our employees are working diligently to meet the needs of our community while maintaining a safe work environment within our Centers,” said Danny Benard, County Solid Waste Director.
