You may place up to eight containers of trash, one bulk item, and your recycling container at the street’s edge any time after 6 p.m. the night before your pick-up. All trash must be in maximum 30-gallon plastic or metal containers or plastic trash bags (sorry, larger containers are not permitted). Tree branches and shrub trimmings may be bundled in four foot lengths. Please don’t use small containers such as boxes or grocery bags because they allow trash to blow around causing litter.

Home repairs and renovations add value and enjoyment to your home and property. When residents want to start a new home project they often don’t know how the process of permitting works or what to do first. The Township wants to make this and all information accessible and easy to understand for our residents. We have created the first set of a series of Township Quick Guides that summarize the permitting process for Desks, Sheds, Fences and Pools. Quick Guides can be found online or picked up at the Township Offices at 210 George Street, Reading PA 19605.
