New Year 2024 Edition!
We get all sorts of different questions about Lower Merion and Narberth, so we put together a few quick items of interest every month or so. If you have a friend who needs this info emailed to them, have them use this link
Christmas Tree Collection
Lower Merion Township will begin the collection of trees (which must be placed curbside) during the first two weeks in January, on your regular refuse collection day. Residents may also dispose of Christmas trees at the Public Works Complex located at 1300 N Woodbine Avenue in Penn Valley, Monday through Friday 8am-3pm and Saturday 9am-2:30pm. All ornaments, stands and other decorations must be removed.
Narberth residents can put their Christmas trees on the curb on Tuesdays nights in January. They will be collected with the regular Wednesday brush pickups in January. All ornaments, stands and other decorations must be removed.

Narberth Trash/Recycle Changes

Narberth now recycles more items
Borough residents can add more (unbagged) items to their recycling bins for Thursday collections. More details here.
That's a lot of trash info!
Sometimes it's tough for residents to keep up with all the trash and recycling rules and schedules, which is why we include so much in these updates. We also keep a trash & recycling info web page updated with everything LM and Narberth residents need to know.
And lastly, a couple of non-trash items to mention:
The Borough has a new Manager
Matt West was the Borough's director of technology and Assistant Manager a few years back and recently served as Interim Manager. Now he has been appointed as Narberth's Borough Manager. Say hello next time you're in Borough Hall!
