The crisis in the global recycling market has caused massive cost increases across the entire recycling industry. The repercussions are being felt by communities across the entire country. Perkasie Borough is seeing an increase of almost $75,000 or approximately 400% in the fees that the Borough is being charged by our recycling haulers.

In December 2019 Borough Council voted to increase the annual trash fee to $50, a necessary step in order to cover these increased recycling disposal costs. The annual trash fee is payable by each residence in addition to the pay-as-you-go trash bag fees or the toter fees.
