Trash & Recycling


Trash should be placed in cans with lids, not loose in bags. Trash should be placed curbside no earlier than 6pm the night before your pick up and no later than 7am the day of. Larger items (furniture, mattresses, carpet, etc.) can be placed out on the second pick up day of the week. Mattresses need to be placed inside plastic bags to be picked up.


For trash and recycling the borough has contracted B&L disposal for our residential pick up.

Recycling information

Single stream recycling is collected every Wednesday borough wide. As with trash, cans can be placed curbside no earlier than 6pm Tuesday evening and no later than 7am Wednesday morning. The borough does provide one recycling bin per address, but you do not need a recycling bin to have your recycling picked up. If you need a larger can for recycling, you can use any trash can, as long as it is marked recycling. We have recycling stickers available at borough hall if this is a better option for you.

Paints & Hazardous Materials

Latex (water based) paints can be placed out for regular trash collection provided they are dried. You can either leave the can open to dry the paint or mix in kitty litter to dry the paint out. All oil based paints and stains must go through the county hazardous materials collection.

Delaware County holds multiple hazardous materials collections through out the year. Please click the following link for a list of collectable materials and collection dates and locations.


Clifton Heights and Aldan Borough have partnered together on electronics recycling. Twice a year these also include paper shredding. Please check the borough calendar for dates. Electronics are considered tv's, computers, cell phones.

Microwaves, radios, VCR's and DVD players, speakers are considered regular trash and can be put out with your regular trash collection.

If you are not sure whether or not an item needs to be E-cycled, please contact borough hall at 610-623-1000
