Recycling & Refuse Services: Keeping UMT Clean & Green
A convenient spectrum of services for the regular disposal or recycling of standard household wastes are provided to Upper Macungie Township residents.
Guidelines for the proper usage of these services are detailed in this section of the website. Should you have any questions, please contact Upper Macungie Township’s Refuse/Recycling Coordinator, Kathy Lancsek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Waste Management has been awarded our trash contract starting 2013.
Call Waste Management for:
A missed pick-up call 1-800-869-5566 then press #4.
To schedule a White Goods (refrigerator or freezer w/door removed, stove, hot water heater, washer) pick-up call 1-800-869-5566 then press #1 and wait on the line for a customer service operator and then tell them you are an Upper Macungie Township resident and your request.
NEW BULK ITEM CHANGE FOR 2013
As of 2013 Upper Macungie Township residents DO NOT NEED to call Waste Management for a single (one) bulk item pick up for the week at no charge. Our refuse/recycling newsletter is not correct. It was printed before UMT got the clarification on bulk item pick up.
Therefore, residents can put their one bulk item out about 2 to 3 feet from their cart and do not need call Waste Management or UMT.
However, this is not for the white goods item (e.g. freezers, refrigerators, etc.) You still call to schedule the white goods item pickup.
