2016 Spring Clean Up & Freecycle

Middle Smithfield Township’s annual Spring Clean Up will be on May 6 & 7. Our Freecycle Event will be on May 12-14.  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!  Everyone wins – the Spring Clean Up costs the taxpayers less money (less 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!

The week of May 12 charitable organizations such as Bushkill Outreach, the Salvation Army, Women’s Resources of Nassau 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.
