Worcester is proud to announce a new recycling option for our community. The Township recently partnered with retrievr, a company that provides convenient curbside collection of used clothing and a wide variety electronics… including those “old-fashioned” television sets that most recycling centers don’t accept!
retrievr collects clothing at no cost, and charges a modest fee for the collection of certain electronics.
And scheduling a pick-up couldn’t be easier. Simply…
- text PICKUP to 757-70-FETCH, or
- visit retrievr.com and click the “schedule a pick-up now” button.
Visit retrievr.com for the complete list of accepted items, fees, and additional program information.
Thank you for your efforts to reuse and recycle, and to reduce the amount of waste dumped in landfills.
Worcester Township is again hosting a holiday tree drop-off location at the self-serve bins located at the Public Works complex (behind the Township Building), 1721 Valley Forge Road. Trees and greens may be dropped-off between December 26 and January 31.
And since we recycle the trees into mulch, all stands, ornaments, plastic bags and tinsel (do they still make this stuff?) must be removed.
Please note that wreaths are not accepted.
