Due to changes in DEP regulations we are currently not able to accept grass clippings at the lawn waste recycling center in Umbenhauer Park.   You are encouraged to either mulch the grass clippings into your lawn, compost it, dispose of it in your regular trash or use the dumpster in front of the borough garage.  As a reminder the recycling center is for Bernville Borough residential yard waste only.   The borough is currently applying for a grant as part of a long term solution to resolve this issue.  

You are  still able to dispose of tree branches and leaf waste at the recycling center.
