Dingman Township
                           Pike County, PA        






Effective September 1, 2013, recycling is mandatory in Dingman Township.  This is required for Dingman Township to be compliant with State Act 101.  As such, every residential property with individual garbage pick-up must make arrangements with their waste hauler to collect their recyclables.  Those living in communities and apartments where a centralized collection station is provided by the community or apartment complex owner, must deposit their recyclables in the bins provided.  Commercial property owners should contact the Township Office to find out the requirements specific to their business.

Yard waste (leaves, sticks, dead garden plants, etc.) must be composted.  The preferred methods as specified in the ordinance are:

1. Allowing the material to naturally decompose on site.

2. Allowing the material to naturally decompose nearby (e.g. raking leaves that fall onto a lawn into the forest).

3. Composting on-site (compost pile)   Click here for information about starting a compost pile.

4. Removal to an off-site composting facility. Click here for a list of firms that will remove leaves for a fee.

Where Other Items May Be Recycled


Electronics Recycling: 

Effective 1/24/13, State law made it illegal to dispose of electronic devices in the trash.  All electronic devices must be recycled.

Dingman Township collects electronic goods (TVs, computers, video games, etc.) for recycling at the Spring and Fall Clean-up Days. See the Calendar of Events page for dates and times.

In addition to Clean-Up Days, cell phones may be brought to the Township Building for recycling, week days during business hours.

Pike County also holds an annual recycling day for electronic goods. The drop off location varies from year-to-year.  Look in the local newspapers for date, time, and drop off location.

Several Pike County businesses will accept electronic goods for recycling at a nominal fee. One Milford area bank also holds an electronics recycling day. Watch local newspapers for details.

State law requires that certain dealers of electronic devices provide recycling services to their customers.  Before you buy a new television, computer, etc., ask if the store will accept your old one for recycling.
