There is still time to register your child!
Why introduce your child to Golf? By encouraging positive youth development, we expose young people to core values and teach them the proper fundamentals of the game of Golf: how the game of golf and rules affect and contribute to everyday life, proper Golf etiquette and encourage a love of a sport that they can enjoy for a lifetime!

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.
Did you know that Upper Macungie Township Authority has it’s own phone number? Please call (610) 398-9171 for sewer, recycling, refuse containers and authority bills.
Waste Management is our new trash collector. All complaints or missed pickups should be directed to Waste Management at 1-800-869-5566.
Upper Macungie Township Police Department is now in service. The Police Station is located at 37 Grim Road, Breinigsville, Pa. Their phone number is 484-661-5911. For emergencies call 911.
