Schwenksville Borough has a Single Hauler Ordinance. This Ordinance dictates that only one Trash Company can operate in the Borough during a specific contract period. The purpose of the Ordinance is to limit the number of days trash is placed at the curb and restrict the number of trash trucks traveling the Borough's narrow roads. Under the Ordinance, Schwenksville Borough seeks competitive bids from multiple trash companies and selects the lowest responsible bidder to service the Borough's Trash and Recycling needs under the Single Hauler Ordinance. This includes anyone who utilizes a dumpster system for trash. A rate schedule for dumpsters is also included in the Bid and is available on line at www.schwenksville-pa.org.
Under Borough Ordinances, all Residential & Non-Residential properties are required to have one Trash and Recycling account per dwelling unit.
An account for you will be established and you will be responsible for payment for the service regardless of whether or not you call to customize your account.
The standard toters provided to you will be 96 gallon sized toters. If you have apartment units you will need to call and set up additional accounts to ensure that you receive the proper number of toters.
