REFUSE & RECYCLING INFORMATION

As of 1/1/04, J P Mascaro & Sons (800-243-7575) is the new refuse hauler for SOUTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP.  If your old collection day was Friday it will remain Friday, any other collection days will switch to Thursdays.

 

Also, residents can now bring cardboard to the Township Building recycling dumpster if they wish it to be recycled.
The more we get the more grant money we receive. If it is placed at the curb with their refuse it will not be recycled.
