What to expect during the Yard Waste Drop-off Day
The Lower Makefield Township yard waste drop-off site will be open several days throughout the year for LMT residents to use. A contractor working on behalf of a LMT resident can also visit the site.
All vehicles will be checked in at the Public Works Garage/Parking area before the driveway into the site. The check-in process will include recording the name, address and type of material being dropped off. A valid driver’s license is also required. If a contractor is performing the drop-off of yard waste materials, the contractor will need to provide their company name, address, name of driver and client information for the LMT residential property where the waste was removed along with the number of loads coming from the property.
All loads will be checked before being permitted to drive into the site to unload. There will be LMT employees on site to direct where to dump the yard waste. Any vehicles with items not permitted will not be allowed into the yard to dump.
