Washington Township would like to encourage the community to enjoy our recently paved walking trails at the Recreation Complex.

Household Hazardous Waste: An event is tentatively scheduled for fall 2023. A date will be announced once the event is confirmed & approved. Online pre-registration is required to participate in this event. Please check back for more information. Note: An Eventbrite user account will be necessary to register for the event. You can create an account at any time. Registration User Instructions Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is waste produced in our households that is hazardous in nature, but not regulated as hazardous waste under federal and state laws. HHW is that portion of a household product that is no longer usable, is left-over or unwanted, and must be disposed of. The labels on hazardous products typically use words like CAUTION, DANGER, WARNING, COMBUSTIBLE, CORROSIVE, EXPLOSIVE, TOXIC, POISON, or FLAMMABLE. • Be sure to read product labels for disposal directions to reduce the risk of products exploding, igniting, leaking, mixing with other chemicals, or posing other hazards. There is no dedicated drop off facility in Northampton County that accepts household hazardous waste. HHW Collection Events provide County residents with access to proper HHW disposal. If you reside within the County, you can take HHW products to an annual collection event free of charge. Acceptable waste must be generated in a home, and not affiliated with any commercial business, contractor, nonprofit, organization, institution, or out-of-county residence. Staff have the right to deny and refuse unauthorized material. Proof of residency is required. • If you cannot attend a county collection event, please consider asking a friend or neighbor to take the items to the event for proper disposal. As a Last Resort If you are unable to wait for a county program offering, you can consider contacting a hazardous waste company to inquire about disposal of HHW materials from your home (fees will apply), or you may legally dispose of them in your household trash provided that: □ You have looked at the label for any disposal instructions and complied with them. □ Liquids have been allowed to evaporate or have been absorbed by a material such as vermiculite, cat litter, sawdust, etc. □ The material has been carefully packaged (i.e., double bagged) to prevent leakage. □ Large quantities are intermingled with your other household trash in small batches over several collection days.

Welcome To Washington Township

Washington Township Washington Township is a pleasant rural community with a variety of features including open space, rolling hills, farms, housing developments, streams, and a mixture of restaurants, stores and services. Most residents find our Township to be a quiet and relaxing place to live. Our community prides itself on its ability to work well together and with others to provide a safe and comfortable life for you and your family.

Common to rural life, there are some characteristics you will also find. For example, our Township is supported by a Volunteer Fire Company and a Volunteer Rescue Squad. Also, the majority of the Township is serviced by private wells and on-lot septic systems. In addition, it is not uncommon to find large and slow moving vehicles such as tractors on the open road, and the smells and sounds associated with a working farm. And finally, we have a high volume of wild animals such as bear, deer, coyotes, skunks, fox, and raccoons.

Our website is designed to help new and current area residents find valuable information and resources regarding our community. If you have any questions or comments regarding the website, or need additional assistance finding information, please contact the office at (610) 588-1524. We will be happy to assist you.
