Heavy/Large Trash Pickup:

In years past, Nether Providence Township provided a Heavy/Large Trash Pickup service that required a pick-up fee. That service has been discontinued and now heavy trash pickup is provided by private hauling companies.


The cost of this private service is generally dependent on the size and type of the trash object and the cost of this service is the responsibility of the homeowner of the trash, not the Putnam Village Condo Association.


The procedures provided in the links below should make disposal of  your Heavy/Large Trash as simple as possible.


The "Pickup Slips" identify the owner of the item and the hauler and are to be attached to the trash item.



DISPOSAL OF TELEVISIONS, DESKTOP COMPUTERS, LAPTOP COMPUTERS, COMPUTER MONITORS OR COMPUTER PERIPHERALS:


Heavy/Large trash has been defined as any trash that will not fit into the blue trash containers. That is still true but it does not apply to televisions, desktop computers, laptop computers, computer monitors or computer peripherals. By law, these items cannot be included with general trash.  They can be disposed of in a number of ways:


1.  They can be disposed of using the same procedures as     Heavy/Large trash.


2.  They can be disposed of free of charge at one of the E-Waste Programs offered by the County of Delaware in conjunction with their Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Events. Four annual events are offered and the schedule is available by clicking on the link below:

3.  Some stores will accept these items for recycling.  Please refer to the "Recycling & Trash Procedures" link on our "Recycling & Trash" webpage for stores that will accept these electronic items for recycling.


But again,  they must not be put in the blue trash containers or set in the trash enclosures.
