Limb Chipping Update

The Borough will be conducting a special limb chipping collection program for residents in need of chipping services following the winter storms we have experienced in our area. Residents who require limb chipping should contact the Public Works Department so that we may conduct the chipping program as quickly and efficiently as possible. Crews will be out beginning Thursday March 14th through Friday March 21st. Please call the Public Works Department at 610-696-5282 or email the Department at publicworks@west-chester.com. All limbs should be placed out at the curb. Any piles placed out after Friday March 21st will not be collected for chipping, but will be collected during the regular yard waste collection schedule so long as they are no longer than 4’ in length.

PA Covered Electronics Recycling Act

On Jan. 24, 2013, a disposal ban on covered devices went into effect in Pennsylvania. Under the PA Covered Electronics Recycling Act, from this point forward, no person may dispose of a covered device, or any of its components, with their municipal solid waste. These devices and their components must be properly recycled and may not be taken to, nor accepted by, landfills or other solid waste disposal facilities for disposal. A list of items that will no longer be accepted is as follows: computers, laptops, tablets, computer monitors, printers, keyboards, televisions, etc.

The Borough will provide a drop off to residents for these items, as well as any small appliance with a plug (i.e. vacuum cleaners, small kitchen appliances, hair dryers, etc). The drop off will be open Monday through Friday 8am-5pm at the Public Works Department, 205 Lacey St. Residents must provide proof of residency in order to dispose of their electronics here and there will be a fee of $5 per item.
