Holiday Trash & Recycling Collection Schedule

Holiday Trash & Recycling Collection Schedule

There is no trash or recycling collection on the following holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

When your trash and recyclables collection day falls on a holiday, your trash and recyclables will be collected on the Monday of that week in the affected district, and yard waste will take place on Saturdays during Holiday weeks. If you are unsure of your property’s collection day, check the 2023 Township Trash and Recycling Collection District Map (PDF) and the 2023 Township Yard Waste Collection Map (PDF). 

For additional information on curbside electronics recycling collection in Whitemarsh Township, view the Electronics Recycling Guide here.

Please be advised that, due to an ongoing problem with bed bugs, J.P. Mascaro is requiring all mattresses and box springs be wrapped in plastic before collection.  The Township sells queen-sized plastic mattress bags for $2.00 each during normal business hours or can be purchased at most home goods stores. Removal of mattresses and box springs is part of the bulk-item pick-up during your regular trash collection day.  One (1) item per household per week is included in the contract.  Freon containing appliances must be scheduled in advance with J.P. Mascaro (1-800-432-1616) at a rate of $65.00 per item for pick-up and proper disposal.   

Disposal of Holiday trees and wreathes:

Residents may leave un-decorated (NO TINSEL or PLASTIC WRAPPING) trees at the curb with yard waste.  Please be mindful to place trees safely at the curb, not in the street.
