Trash/Recycling & Holiday Tree Collection Schedule

Just a reminder to residents of Jenkintown that trash and recycling will be postponed one day this week and next week due to Christmas Day and New Years Day falling on a Monday. 
Trash and recycling will be collected on Saturday, January 6th due to the New Year holiday. 
Holiday Tree Collection will occur on all Tuesdays in January. Trees must be placed on the curb and this collection will only apply to real trees. All lights, tinsel, beads and ornaments must be removed. Trees should not be placed in a tree bag; since all recycled trees will be ground into wood mulch. If there are any questions about tree collection, please call 215-885-0700. 
Have a wonderful and healthy New Year!
