Trash and Recycling Collection

Even during the COVID-19 crisis, Township trash, recycling and bulk trash collection will be maintained according to the existing schedule.

Please see that schedule and other information at our Trash & Recycling webpage.

However, please do not put any additional trash or recycling at curbside, as it will not be collected.

Please continue to follow the existing rules.

Thank you.



2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.

Chinese health officials have reported tens of thousands of cases of COVID-19 in China, with the virus reportedly spreading from person-to-person in parts of that country.

COVID-19 illnesses, most of them associated with travel from Wuhan, also are being reported in a growing number of international locations, including the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Chester County Health Department are the lead agencies providing guidance on COVID-19.

Chester County has established a website that is updated daily for COVID-19 information:  Chester County Health Department.

West Goshen Township will not be providing masks, hand sanitizer or any other supplies to Township residents.

It is highly recommended to frequently check the Chester County Health Department’s COVID-19 web page for updated information.


Do not use plastic bag liners in recycling toters

The Township’s waste & recycling contractor has reported that some residents are using plastic bag liners secured with rubber bands in their recycling bins.  Please refrain from using plastic bag liners in your recycling bin, as the plastic bags and rubber bands can become dislodged and contaminate the collected recycling.  If your recycling toter is found to have a plastic bag liner and rubber band, you will receive a warning sticker.
