Dump Location: Borough residents are permitted to drop off trash, recycling and brush to Lower Merion Township Transfer Station but must pay a per pound price. Residents are allowed to participate in the E Waste events because it is a pay as you go, at the event. Since residents contribute raw materials to the composting efforts, residents can take the mulch and such that it produces.

Transfer Station at 1300 N. Woodbine Avenue, Penn Valley, PA 19072, hours are Monday through Friday 8am-3pm and Saturdays 9am-2:30pm. Proof of residency required. Fees: Pay a per pound price.
