New Schedule for Reservations 2021

Washington Township usually rents the Red Run, Pine Hill and Monterey park pavilions and the Rouzerville Community Center the first weekday after New Year’s Day. This year, going into 2021, Washington Township has decided to make a change due to COVID-19 and its restrictions along with many other issues associated with it this past year.

For 2021, reservations for the park pavilions only, will be taken starting on March 1,2021. We will however begin taking reservations either by phone, email or drop box for the Rouzerville Community Center starting on January 4, 2021. Please remember that all DOH and CDC guidelines are to be followed . If you have any questions, please call the office at 717-762-3128

Recycling Update for 2021

On November 2nd, 2020 the Recycling Center at the Washington Township Transfer Station started to only accept “Single Stream” recyclable materials on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.  “Single Steam” recyclables will be dropped off up the hill behind the Recycling Buildings and placed in the yellow containers as they are now.

Further changes, taking place starting on January 2nd, 2021 and will consist of the following:

  1. NO Single Stream Recyclables will be accepted from anyone except a resident of Washington Township.  Proof of residency consists of a valid PA driver’s license or PA Photo ID Card and valid vehicle registration. The vehicle must be registered to an address in Washington Township.
  2. Vehicles used for dropping off recyclables must display a Washington Township issued sticker. This can be purchased annually from the Township for $20 each and must be permanently attached to the vehicle.

The “Single Stream” Recycling is only available for residential recycling.  Cardboard, scrap metal and leaves will still be accepted from everyone on any given day of operation. NO CHANGES will be made to recycle items which we charge a fee for; such as brush, batteries, grass and tires.  These alterations are being made to try to control the cost of the ever changing Recycling Operation and will continue to allow Washington Township to offer this program to our residents.

Washington Township Administrative Offices are CLOSED

Due to the local increase of COVID-19 cases, our Administrative offices will be closed to the public effective at 8:00 AM Friday, November 20, 2020. Staff will be working either in the offices or remotely and will be available to assist you via phone, fax and email.

If necessary, meetings with staff will be conducted by appointment only.  All correspondence to the office or staff may be sent via mail, fax or placed in the drop box located at the front of the municipal building, next to the door.  Public meetings for now will continue to be held in person utilizing all Department of Health safety guidelines.  

Thank you for your cooperation in this crucial matter.
