    As many residents are aware, Lehigh Township participates with the First Regional Compost Authority for the disposal of yard waste. The Township's facility is located across the street from the Maintenance Garage. Residents, at their convenience, are permitted to bring brush, hedge clippings, and leaves to the facility. The material is then transported to the First Regional Compost Facility on Weaversville Road and processed into mulch and compost which is then returned to the Township and made available to the residents for their use.

    As a reminder to residents, this facility is only for the disposal of yard waste--acceptable items to be dropped off at this site are brush, hedge clippings, and leaves. Recently, there have been instances where unacceptable material, such as rock and metal have been mixed in with the yard waste. This type of material causes a significant amount of damage to the equipment that is used at the facility, resulting in expensive repairs. These costly repairs will unfortunately be eventually be passed on to all the users of the facility.

    Everyone needs to be mindful of what they are bringing to the site. Please make sure the material that is brought to the site is free of rocks and stones. The facility is not meant for disposal of household waste. Your cooperation is appreciated.

    All residents, please be reminded that if you have an emergency that requires an immediate response from the Police, Fire or Ambulance, call 911 or 610-317-0808 not the police department office number (*610-760-8800). *The PD number is not staffed 24 hours.

    Welcome To Lehigh Township

    Lehigh Township is located along the western border of Northampton County, Pennsylvania. Lehigh is bordered by the Borough of Walnutport to the west, Moore Township to the east, Lower Towamensing Township to the north and Allen and North Whitehall Townships, to the south.

    Lehigh Township was surveyed in 1735 by orders of Thomas Penn. It was proposed that 6,500 acres be set aside for Native Americans, but the land became a settlement of immigrants instead. Before October 1752, when the township was officially created, the area had been called Adjacents to Allen, which probably refers to adjacent Allen Township. Although some residents wanted the name Seimsy after an early Moravian Indian covert named Seim, the county court opted for the name Lehigh Township instead. For more history please visit the Lehigh Township Historical Society.

    With a population of over 10,000 today, Lehigh Township is a thriving community for both families and business. Please feel free to browse our website and don't hesitate to contact us for further assistance.
