What happens if my residential property has five units or more?

If you are the owner of a residential property with five units or more, you are not required to be on the Borough's trash program, although you may choose to do so at the yearly per unit rate. It is the responsibility of the property owner to contact the Borough Office and register the property for trash and collection service.

If you register, trash and recycling services will be provided following a 30 day processing period. The processing period begins when signed applications are received at the Elizabethtown Borough Office. This agreement to receive trash and recycling services may be cancelled by providing notice in writing to Elizabethtown Borough prior to a) June 1st for services to be received July 1 to December 31 or b) December 1st for services to be received January 1 to June 31 of the next calendar year. 

If you do not utilize the Borough's program, you are still required to provide trash and recycling services to your property.
