Refuse and Recycling in Emmaus

The Borough of Emmaus currently has a contracted refuse and recycling  hauler.  The Borough has a long tradition of having a contracted hauler, as this has historically allowed our residents to pay lower refuse prices for more services than a private, traditional service would provide.  This also allows the Borough of Emmaus and its residents to maintain a high standard of expectations for delivery of refuse and recycling services. 

The Borough is proud of the community's efforts in recycling and compost.  We have a very large compost site for our residents and businesses to utilize.  We provide both curbside recycling as well as electronics recycling for our residents.  We host an annual Earth Day event with the Joint Environmental Advisory Council, which is a joint effort between the Borough of Emmaus and Upper Milford Township.  Our residents do an excellent job in recycling and composting as many items as they possibly can, as they are aware and conscious of the environment and the impacts of our refuse.
