Trash & Recycle

Homeowners can call A.J. Blosenski at 610-942-2707 to inform them about a large item pickup, to schedule a bulk pickup, to purchase a new recycle bin, or with questions about a pickup. 

Community Trash & Recycle Services
Weekly Curbside Collection Schedule

: trash & recyclables collected early morning, generally 7am*
Fridays: trash collection times can vary between morning and afternoon*
*Consider placing receptacles out the night prior so they can be collected

AJ Blosenski provided each home with a 96 gallon trash cart. This is a durable trash receptacle with wheels, attached lid, and lifetime warranty for use during the length of their services. AJ Blosenski asks residents to limit their waste to the capacity of their 96 gallon trash cart per pickup and to promote recycling acceptable materials. Larger items for pickup require a call ahead of time as some items may be considered "Bulk". 

Recycling is a complimentary service that AJ Blosenski highly encourages. They provided each home with a 22 gallon recycling bin. They collect an unlimited amount of recyclable materials: paper and cardboard mixed together and single-stream commingle is accepted.

Bulk Pickup Services
Monthly Curbside Bulk Collection Schedule

1st Tuesday
: large & bulk* items collected along with regular trash
*Some items may have an associated cost or may require you to call ahead

Both the free "large" pick up and the pay-per-pick up "bulk item" collection require a call to A.J. Blosenski at 610-942-2707
. This is both as a courtesy and to also prevent things from being missed early in the morning.
After a call has been placed ahead of time, large items not considered 'bulk' will be picked up free of charge at the next trash collection.
Examples: bicycles, carpeting (up to 12×12 size, rolled/cut), indoor and outdoor furniture, grills (must remove propane tanks), microwaves, mirrors (must be wrapped in plastic or taped), push-mowers (must empty liquids), vacuums. 
After a call has been placed ahead of time, 1 bulk household item or special item pickup will be collected during the 1st Tuesday of each month trash pickup for a possible additional cost.
Examples: Items with Additional Fee and conditions: hazardous waste (including paint cans), covered electronics, construction debris, metal appliances, mattresses, and box springs. See the bottom of the page for more details. Schedule these items for an additional fee by calling A.J. Blosenski at 610-942-2707 (and let them know you are with the Fox Run Community who has a 1st Tuesday of the month pickup)

Rules & Regulations Regarding Trash & Recycle
• Remember to keep trash receptacles and recycle containers away from the unit front entrances until ready for pickup. Store them out of sight, typically on or under the deck. 
• Place all "loose" trash bags out the morning of trash pickup -- should you place trash out the night prior, it must be in a lidded trash container. Loose white trash bags or grocery bags are not permitted to be left out overnight as they attract small animals that rip through the bags and leave a mess; our trash contract does not include cleaning up these messes.
• Place trash & recycle receptacles at the end of your front lawn, but please do not obstruct the sidewalks.  
If you are going to have a small dumpster outside of your home for a short period of time, please complete an Architectural Request form. Provide the reason for needing it (renovations, roof repairs, etc), the size of the dumpster (one or two parking spots, which would have to be the two spots the homeowner uses) and a reasonably accurate estimate of the timeframe. The homeowner will have to inform both neighbors on either side of the project and get their acknowledgement (there is a spot to record this on the Arch request form) before it can be sent off for Board approval.

No Electronics Recycling
The community does not have an electronics recycling program. For information on Recycling of Computers, Computer Monitors, Televisions and Other Electronic Devices, visit the following links:
