North Newton Township has renewed the Trash & Recycling Collection Agreement with Southampton Township. The new contract was awarded to Apple Valley Waste (aka Park’s) and is effective July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2026.

The rates listed below are guaranteed to stay at the same level for the life of the contract. No fuel surcharge will be added during this time.

Residents may choose from the following levels of service:

  1. Full-service (weekly trash and recycling collection):  $55.00 per quarter

    This service provides a 96-gallon trash toter, recycling toter and pick up of 1 bulk item per week. Bulk pick up requires a call to the township office prior to your collection day.
    Please Note: All trash must be bagged and fit in the provided trash toter. If one trash toter will not suffice, a second service will need to be purchased. Trash collection routes are designed and calculated to accommodate a specific number of customers; extra trash bags are not included in the calculation.

North Newton Township residents also have the option to dispose of up to five (5) 30-gallon bags of trash FREE, per week, in addition to disposing of recyclables, by taking them to the Cumberland County Landfill during their normal operating hours (weekdays between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.). Stop by the scale house and present identification proving residency to obtain a landfill ID card. Should you need to contact them directly, please call (717) 423-9953.
