Bulk Item Collection
Bulk will be collected every week with your trash and recycling depending on your households location in the Township. Construction debris is not considered bulk (see below). Freon must be removed from refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers by an appliance dealer or refrigeration mechanic and have the appliance marked with a sticker before it will be removed. (Federal law.)
Mattresses and box springs must be wrapped in plastic before collection.

No Construction or Demolition Debris!
We do not pick up concrete or construction materials, such as roofing and other home remod- eling debris. You will need to make special arrangements with J.P. Mascaro & Sons or another waste hauler to remove this debris.

Yard Waste Collection
Curbside yard waste collected once per week between April 1 and January 31 . Yard Waste shall include materials such as leaves, branches, brush, flowers, roots, pruning, Christmas trees and weeds and other types of biodegradable materials and other mixtures of decayed or decaying organic material commonly thrown away in the course of maintaining yards and gardens. GRASS CLIPPINGS ARE NOT ACCEPTED AS YARD WASTE. Place in biodegradable bags and/or containers with trash and recycling. Branches/Twigs should be cut in 4 foot lengths and tied in bundles.

No Hazardous Wastes!
Car batteries, gasoline, motor oil, pesticides, oil-based paint, car tires, and other toxic and haz- ardous materials do not belong in the trash! Call Northampton County at 610-559-3000 for infor- mation on disposing of these materials. Many auto stores accept used motor oil and car batteries.

Single-Stream Recycling Collection (Every Week!)
Recycling collection will occur once a week on your service day. The material will be picked up as single-stream recycling, and the Township has adopted an expanded list of recyclable materials that will no longer need to be separated. You can simply use a regular trash con- tainer provided it is appropriately marked for recycling and place all recyclable items into the same container. Do not use plastic bags. The Plainfield Township Office (6292 Sullivan Trail, Nazareth, PA 18064) has labels available for residents to affix to their recycling con- tainers that are marked "Recyclable Items Only". Please stop by the Township Office to pick them up during regular business hours (M-F, 8:00 A.M.-4:00 P.M.).
