TRASH PICKUP

Township residents are required to find their own private trash hauler. If you live in a development with an HOA, check with them as they may provide trash services. Contact Chester County Solid Waste Authority for information on proper recycling.

SEWER/WATER

The Township does not provide any sewer or water services. Some developments have public water and/or sewer and are serviced by Aqua America. Click here to see if your road has public water or sewer. If you are having water issues, you will need to contact a plumber. If you are having sewer issues, you will need to contact a septic servicer. 

YARD WASTE PICKUP

The Township does not offer yard waste facilities. Contact a local landscaper to see if they can assist you.

WHY DID I RECEIVE A NOTICE ABOUT MY SEPTIC TANK?

On February 6, 2017, West Pikeland Township approved Ordinance 2017-01, An Ordinance providing for a Septic Management Program for West Pikeland Township in accordance with municipal codes, the Clean Streams Law and Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act 537. The purpose of this Ordinance is to provide for the regulation, inspection, maintenance, and rehabilitation of Individual Sewage Systems in our township. Full text of the Ordinance can be found here: https://www.westpikeland.com/ordinances

 

The Ordinance states, “Property owners shall arrange for an initial inspection of the On-Lot Sewage Disposal System to be conducted by a Pennsylvania Sewage Management Association certified inspector within three (3) years of the effective date of this ordinance for the purpose of determining the type and functional status of each sewage disposal system in the Township and every three (3) years thereafter”.

 

What does this mean?

 

The Township will be notifying residents who have not had an inspection and pumping report from a Licensed Liquid Waste Hauler since April 1, 2017.

Your Hauler provides documentation to Chester County Health Department, there is no further action needed on your part except to schedule the service.

 

What should I do?

 

If you had your septic tank pumped and inspected after April 1, 2017, you will not receive a notice from the township unless your Hauler has not submitted the paperwork to the Chester County Health Department. If you receive a letter and did have the inspection and pumping, contact your Hauler and they will need to provide the information to the Chester County Health Department.

 

If you have not had your septic tank pumped and inspected since April 1, 2017, please contact a Hauler to pump and inspect your septic tank. They will provide the information to the Chester County Health Department.

 

If you have public sewer, this notice does not apply.
