Delco Alert 4/3/23 - Trash Schedule Changes and More

Upper Darby Township
April 3, 2023

Good afternoon, this is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with some important updates for our Upper Darby community.

This Friday, April 7th is a township holiday and the trash and recycling schedules are different this week:  Wednesday’s recycling will be collected on Tuesday for Area 2 and Wednesday for Area 1. Friday’s trash and recycling will be collected on Wednesday.

Next week’s trash and recycling schedule will be the regular one with the addition of Yard Waste collections which coincide with your regular curbside collection day.  Please put your yard waste loosely in a trash can or in a yard waste heavy-duty paper bag and help us lower our trash disposal fee costs by participating. 

As part of the Darby Creek Valley Association’s 39th annual Watershed-Wide cleanup, there will be clean-ups at various Upper Darby sites on two Saturdays this month, starting at 9am, rain or shine:

  • This Saturday, April 8, at Penn Pines Park, Gillespie Park (the site of our first recreational trail) and at Bloomfield and Rosemont (which is also part of our first recreational trail);

  • Saturday, April 22, at Naylors Run Park and Naylors Run South (across Garrett Road from the Naylors Run Park entrance) and at the Swedish Cabin;

And thank you to all of our local site captains for heading these clean-ups.  Please go to for more information and remember that even an hour of your time makes a big difference!

Finally, on Saturday, April 15th, Upper Darby will be hosting a Pet Expo at Kent Park from 10am to 2pm. Visit for details.

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer wishing you all a wonderful week!
