Township Cleanup and Freecycle!

Middle Smithfield Township’s annual Clean Up will be on May 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Residents can drop off their gently used items with the knowledge that they won’t go to a landfill – but one of their neighbors or a charitable organization instead!  Our Freecycle Giveaway Event will be the following week on May 9th and May 10th. Everyone wins – the Clean Up costs the taxpayers less money (fewer dumpsters), Pennsylvania landfills don’t fill up as quickly, and residents and local charities receive needed goods at a price that can’t be beat – FREE!

In the weeks following the Freecycle event, local charitable organizations such as Bushkill Outreach, the Salvation Army, Women’s Resources of Monroe County can come and pick up whatever is left over.  Any books left in good condition will be held by the township and delivered to the Hughes Library for their annual book sale in June.

Clean Up costs $5 per car load (slightly more for larger vehicles – see the attached flier for details) and tires disposal starts at $4 per each tire.  Middle Smithfield will accept bulk items, furniture, toys, washers, dryers, bicycles, lawn mowers, water heaters, batteries, nails, screws, empty paint cans – just no household garbage, construction debris or hazardous materials.
And not to forget our recycling efforts, Middle Smithfield Township will be recycling metals, electronics, and many other materials to further decrease the amount of items going to our landfills.
