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.
