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.
- There is no interuption of trash / recycling services the week of Oct. 14th. Please place your items out for normal collection.
- FALL 2019 CURBSIDE YARD WASTE COLLECTION: October 14th - October 18th (on your regular trash collection day). Click here for complete details.

- Street Trees – Property owners are responsible for trimming of street trees planted in the Right-of-Way. Chapter 21, Part 4 of the LMT Code of Ordinances states, Owners shall maintain all street trees within or abutting their property to ensure that they are free of damage and disease, and shall not create a risk of harm to passerby. This is a reminder to trim the low hanging branches so pedestrians can travel safely on the sidewalks in our communities. Property owners who do not maintain the trees along the sidewalk may be subject to fines and penalties. Please do your part for the community!
