Bulk Trash Pickup

Bulk trash items are picked up the third Thursday of every month.  The pickup is free to residents who pay for Borough trash removal and can be scheduled by calling (610-543-4599) or emailing (swarthmore2@comcast.net) the Borough Office. Orders for pickup must be scheduled by noon on the third Wednesday of every month.  You must provide a list of the items you wish to have picked up, and there is a maximum of ten items per pickup.  

Please note that bulk trash does not include unreasonably large quantities of material resulting from major home renovations, repairs of the residential dwelling unit, or vacation of the premises. Additionally we are unable to accept:

  • Items containing Freon.  These items must be certified from the owner that the Freon has been removed in a manner consistent with applicable laws.
  • Electronic Covered Devices. These devices include computers, laptops, computer peripherals, televisions, etc.  If you need to dispose of an item listed above you will have to do so at one of the County's Household Hazardous Waste events or through a private recycler of your choice.  Some e-waste can be disposed of at the collection trailer located behind the Swarthmore Co-op.
