Notice to Residents Regarding Collection of Household Trash, Recyclables and Yard Waste


Due to the ongoing effects of COVID 19, J. P. Mascaro & Sons has advised that there will be continued delays in the collection of household trash, recycling and yard waste. The Township has been actively monitoring collections and communicating with Mascaro on a regular basis to insure that Mascaro is aware of any issues observed by the Township or reported by Township residents.

Please continue to place these household trash, recycling and yard waste curbside as you normally would on the assigned days.  Mascaro will pick up items as soon as they can in the following priority:

Priority #1 - Household Trash – For health and safety reasons, all household trash should be placed in bags, and preferably inside containers.

Priority #2 - Household Recyclables - All recyclable materials should be placed loosely (not inside bags) inside clearly marked recycling containers; not outside or next to the container.  All large recyclables, such as cardboard boxes, should be broken down to fit in the recycling containers. 

Priority #3 - Yard Waste – Preferably, all yard waste should be placed in biodegradable bags. Please note that Yard Waste may be collected on weekends. 

The Township appreciates your understanding and cooperation in these unprecedented times.   Please check the Northampton Township Website for future updates and to sign up for news alerts.
