Trash & Recycling

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Honey Brook Borough offers a weekly trash and recycling program with a pay as you go bag system and a provided recycling cart. 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!

Effective Monday, June 6, 2022, trash and recycling collection is every Monday morning and items need to be placed at curb-side by 6 AM. Click on the button below for the 2022 Collection Calendar.

The cost for each green Honey Brook Borough trash bag is $3.00 (Effective 1/1/2021).

They can be purchased at 5 locations: Eby’s General Store, Honey Brook Express Gas (Route 10), Honey Brook Hardware, Ziffy’s and Honey Brook Borough Hall during normal business hours.

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 cart is provided to every household. 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.
