Honey Brook Borough Trash & Recycling

Honey Brook Borough offers a weekly trash and recycling program with a pay as you go bag system and a provided recycling bin. Please take note, that trash will only be picked up in a green Honey Brook bag REMOVED FROM THE TRASH CAN and set by the curb.  Trash cans set by the curb will not be emptied even if they are lined with a green Honey Brook bag!

The trash and recycling collection is every Wednesday Morning and items need to be placed at curb-side by 4 AM. As a reminder, the trash ordinance states that


  • The week of 1/1/18 collection will be Thursday due to the New Year Holiday
  • The week of 5/28/18 collection will be one day later due to Memorial Day
  • The week of 7/2/18 collection will be one day later due to Independence Day
  • The week of 12/24/18 collection will be one day later due to Christmas Day


The cost for each green Honey Brook Borough trash bag is $2.00.
They can be purchased at 3 locations: Eby's General Store, Turkey Hill Market (in the Borough)
and the Honey Brook Express Gas Station (on Rt. 10 in the Borough). 

The cost of the bag helps to offset the cost of collection. State law prohibits the Borough from making a profit from the trash collection program.

Borough Officials have always been proud of the importance the residents have placed on recycling. To support their effort, a recycling bin is provided to every household. Additional bins cost $10 and are available at Borough Hall. Please click here to view what is recyclable.

The Borough also offers yard waste collection on the 3rd Wednesday of the month; starting in April and ending in November. Yard waste must be in bio-degradable PAPER bags; limbs and branches must be bundled in 4 foot lengths and not over 2” in diameter. The bundles must be small enough for 1 man to handle.

Yard waste collection dates for 2018:










One bulk item may be set out on the first Wednesday of each month (Jan. through Dec.). Bulk items are items that are too large to fit in Borough trash bags.




 The current trash hauler for the Borough is:
Eagle Disposal
1245 Eagles Way
PO Box 288
East Earl, PA 17519

Residents are able to contract privately for trash removal.
