Compost Facility Update
Beginning March 1, 2020, Grass Clippings are NO LONGER being accepted at the Harborcreek Township Compost Facility. The township has no avenue to dispose of grass clippings and with many being contaminated with commercial “weed and feed” products, grass cannot be added to our compost mix. Waste management will accept bagged grass clippings on regular refuse day. In addition, any leaves that are dropped off MUST BE removed from plastic bags and bags must be taken. Limbs, logs or tree stumps larger than 6 inches in diameter are NOT PERMITTED to be dropped off at the compost site.
