Delco Alert - April 4, 2020

Hello, this is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with an update on the coronavirus and Upper Darby Township. As you may have heard, Governor Wolf and the PA Department of Health are now encouraging Pennsylvanians to wear masks whenever they leave the house. Masks help prevent people from sharing illness. You do not need a surgical or N95 mask. Please save those for health care professionals and first responders. Instructions on how to make simple protection can be found on the Township website –

This Friday, April 10th, is Good Friday and it is a Township Holiday. There will be no trash or recycling collection on Friday, April 10th.

Please visit our website for full details. Our public works staff has been doing a great job of collecting our trash and recycling throughout this crisis. Please help keep them safe by making sure your trash is in a sealed bag placed inside a trash can. And place any mattresses in a mattress bag available online.

I regret to announce that the Township’s Shred event originally scheduled for April 18th has been cancelled. I have also cancelled all in person listening tour events until further notice. We must stay physically distant for the next while but if we follow the Governor’s Stay Home order then we will get through this crisis more quickly.

Finally, Interim Superintendent of Police, Tim Bernhardt would like to remind residents that if they wish to report businesses or residents who are not complying with the Governor’s Stay At Home order to please call the non-emergency line at 610-734-7693. That’s 610-734-7693. Please keep our first responders safe by staying home as much as possible.

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer reminding you to stay calm, stay safe, and stay home.
