Trash & Recycling Services


  • Weekly Trash Collection:
    General residential garbage and trash is collected on Tuesday of each week throughout the Borough.  Trash is collected and disposed by a private concern under contract to the Borough.
  • Heavy Trash Pick-Up:
    Large items of trash are collected by the Borough Highway Department each Wednesday.  To have items picked up, please fill out the "Bulk Trash Removal Form" found under "Borough Documents" and bring the form to the Municipal Building at 1111 Market Street,  prior to Wednesday.  A modest fee is charged for this service.
  • May is Clean-Up Month:
    May is annually declared clean-up month in Marcus Hook to emphasize our commitment to a clean town.  Free dumping privileges on selected days are often afforded residents in the large trash dumpster at the Highway Department garage.  Details will be announced.
  • Leaf Collection Services:
    Bagged leaves are collected by the once weekly service.  During the latter part of fall, the Highway Department operates a vacuuming program to collect leaves piled along the streets.
  • Christmas Tree Pick-Up
    A special collection is provided after the Christmas season to collect Christmas trees by the Highway Department. Christmas Trees will be picked up every Tuesday and Wednesday in January of 2023.  Trees must be free of lights and decorations, and placed curbside to be picked up.  
  • Dead Animal Disposal:
    The removal of dead animals is provided by calling the Municipal Building 610-485-1341.
