Woody Waste Facility

The Borough operates a Woody Waste facility for the recycling of natural wood waste and leaves. Materials brought to the facility are ground into mulch, which is available for free to Borough residents.

Leaves, twigs, branches, brush, bushes, shrubbery, vines, kindling, driftwood, and wood chips are all accepted at the facility. The Borough does not accept trash, grass or grass clippings, or construction debris (timber, paneling, shingles, beams, molding, shelves, doors, boards, lumber).

Due to budget constraints, the Borough no longer offers curbside pickup of woody waste.

Woody Waste Facility cards may be purchased at Borough Hall.  The facility will close January 15, 2024 and reopen to the public April 1, 2024 from 8 AM to 7 PM Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The gate will be inactivated outside of these times. Fees: Middletown Resident Annual:  $10.00, Lower Swatara/Royalton Resident Annual:  $50.00. No commercial/contractor use.
