The Commonwealth and County have regulations that mandate the pick-up of residential garbage and recycling. Furthermore, as part of these mandates, it does not allow the transportation of garbage/refuse in private vehicles. As such, the Township has an ordinance mandating that all residential households participate in the Township-sponsored program for collection of garbage and recycling. This ordinance was adopted by Township Council a number of years ago in order to bring the Township in compliance with County and State regulations. Should you not participate in the Township-sponsored Waste Management program for the collection of garbage and recycling, you are still responsible for the payment of a garbage bill. Furthermore, Waste Management is well within its legal rights to sue for the collection of all delinquent payments and possibly lien your property.
Enacted in 2010, the PA Covered Device Recycling Act (HB-708) requires that consumers not dispose of covered devices, such as computers, laptops, monitors and televisions, with their trash. This means that trash haulers will no longer be able to take covered devices unless the municipality has a curbside electronics collection program that ultimately sends the devices to an electronics recycler. For more information, view our webpage on disposing of electronic devices.

Waste Management observes the following holidays:
Memorial Day - Fourth of July - Labor Day - Thanksgiving - Christmas Day - New Year's Day

Rats, the most common pest rodent in this area, are semi-aquatic by habit and are frequently found living in close association with humans. They can create danger because of the diseases they often carry and the destruction they can cause. The Township of Hampton takes steps to control the rodent populations in the township by responding to concerns or complaints about rodents. Homeowners, especially those living in close proximity to a drainage ditch, are urged to keep yard areas neatly cut and trimmed. Pet owners are urged to give their pets only the amount of food that they will consume at a single feeding, and to clean up after their pets on a daily basis. The Resident's Guide to Rodent Control (PDF) is designed to assist you in the control of rats and the environmental conditions that breeds rats. If you suspect you have a rodent problem, please call Susan Bernet at the township at 412-486-0400, extension 1303. We will have a rodent official inspect your property as soon as possible. If he inspects your property and finds rodents he will have you sign a release form immediately, so he may bait your property.
