Delco Alert - 1/5/23

Delco Alert Jan 5, 2023

Hi, this is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with some important updates for our Upper Darby community:

I’m excited to announce that the all new One Center will be opening this month, on January 18, on the ground floor of the municipal building. Just as Upper Darby is the “World In One Place,” the One Center will assist with all of our constituent services as a one-stop, ADA accessible space that shows Upper Darby is a world class provider of municipal services. I am so excited to be bringing this resource to our residents and thankful to our administrative team who have worked together to make this a reality. 

As a friendly reminder, next week, January 9-13th, Christmas trees will be collected along with the regular recycling.  Our public works staff chip the trees for mulch and they also  use them as part of a streambank restoration project near the Swedish Cabin along Darby Creek.  Recycling the trees also keeps them out of the normal trash stream which helps our local environment as well as well as keeping costs down. Please consider recycling your Christmas Tree next week along with your regular recycling. Do not place the tree in a bag and ensure all decorations are removed. 

There is also an upcoming township holiday on Monday, January 16th. The municipal building will be closed in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and no trash or recycling will be collected. Please visit to see how your pick up will be affected by the holidays. You can also sign up for delco alerts to receive updates on changes to the trash schedule by visiting 

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer wishing you well in the new year.
