Additional waste collection services to include Household Hazardous Wastes and Electronic Wastes for LMT residents!

Lower Macungie was lucky enough to renew our refuse contract with Waste Management at the same rate of $72 per quarter since 2004. Unfortunately, we could no longer extend our contract and went out to bid this past spring. Waste Management was the lowest bidder, so they will continue to service Lower Macungie Township. You will notice an increase of your refuse bill to $90 per quarter; however, we are happy to announce that the new contract includes collection of electronic waste, household hazardous waste (HHW), increased curbside yard waste collection and curbside grass collection. Residents serviced by the Township’s contractor will be notified directly by WM in the beginning of fall with complete details of how their HHW collection program works.
