Econ is now on Facebook! Show your support and Like us for weather alerts, holiday schedules and other trash-related news.   

Next trash holiday: Memorial Day, Monday, May 25 
In Case of Winter Weather:

With the snow season upon us, we will do our best to safely continue operations as normal.  In the event unsafe road conditions force us to close or delay, we will post information on our website and our Facebook page.  We will send an email alert only if an entire day is delayed and the whole week schedule is disrupted.
Please have your trash out the night before your scheduled pickup day, no matter what the weather report.  We will not be able to go back for missed pickups during inclement weather.
Seniors:  If you feel you are unable to safely take your can down to the end of the driveway, please hold it until the next week, or call us and we will try to help.

Recycling Covered Devices:  It's the Law
Pennsylvania has passed the Covered Devices Recycling Act, a new law effective January 24, 2013. The law prohibits residents from putting any covered device in the trash.
A covered device includes:
  • Desktop computers, laptops and computer accessories
  • Televisions
  • E-readers (Kindle, iPad, or any handheld tablet)
As a trash hauler, it is illegal for Econ to take any covered device a customer has put out.  Only companies with a specific electronic recycling license can accept any covered device.
You can drop off your covered devices at:
  • The store you purchased the device or any major electronic supplier, such as Best Buy.

We moved!  Our new office headquarters are at 140 Nottingham Road, Nottingham, Pa. 19362.  Feel free to stop by to pay your bill or just to say hi!
