Why did my Trash/ Recycling not get picked up?

  • The most common reason your trash or recycling didn’t get picked up is that the cans aren’t to the edge of the Property. JP Mascaro will not come on to your property to get the cans. Cans need to be moved from next to the garage to edge of property. If in an alley cans should be at end of parking area where alley meets parking area. Also JP Mascaro will not return the cans back on to your property they will put them back on the edge of the property.
  • Second most common reason that your cans aren’t getting picked up is because they are blocked. Please make sure that your car isn’t blocking your cans.
  • One reasons that your Trash is picked up and not your Recycling would be: you have non recyclable items in your recycling can. Please review the list of recyclable items below.
  • JP Mascaro has been putting Notice of Non-Compliance for curbside collection notices on your cans if they find issues. Please review the notice and make the changes needed to comply so that they will continue to pick up your trash/recycling. Click here to see a copy of the Notice of Non-Compliance

When will I get my bill? And who will be billing me?

  • The bills will be mailed quarterly. Just like the sewer bills, trash service bills are payable to Souderton Borough.
  • Payments can be made in person or by mail. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card.
  • When paying by check Sewer payments and Trash payments must be paid on two separate checks.
  • Souderton Borough prefers both Trash and Sewer services mailing to go to the property owner or property manager.  If you are a property owner and request to have a utility bill mailed to the occupant of your property you must understand regardless of who resides at your property the owner of the property will always be responsible for unpaid invoices.

  • No more than 4 bags can be placed out on the curb per week. Please note: If one or more bags will be going to the curb per week, it may be more cost effective to go with the Standard Weekly Service Trash Recycling Tote Service.

Why did I get multiple sets of Totes?

  • Each unit is required to have trash and/ or recycle service.
  • If you have 4 units in your building you will receive 1 set of totes per unit. Four recycle totes and four trash totes.
  • If you have a multi unit building please call our office 215-723-4371

  • At Settlement you should have received a copy of the trash form please update that form and return it to our office. You can either Fax it  215-723-4371, mail it, or email it to us.
  • If you move in in the middle of a quarter if the seller already paid for full quarter you will pay them for the rest of your quarter, we will not be prorating the bills. If there is a outstanding Balance you will have to get that amount from Seller at settlement for their part of that quarter.

Souderton Community Park

Thanks to many volunteers and borough crews the Souderton Community Park annually recieves a fresh look. Earth Day kicks off a community clean up and the Souderton Community Park is one of the many sites throughout the borough to get a spring pick up and a year long make over. Recently the park benches, tables, shuffleboard, pavilion and band shell were painted. Even though park maintenance is in the plan, Mother Nature usually adds a few items on the ‘list of things to do’ .

Painting in the ParkThe Souderton Community Park is a gathering place for many activities throughout the seasons. Thousands of guests visit the park each year. Many memories are cherished and celebrated annually, family reunions, birthday parties, picnics and special events.  Families enjoy spending the day at the Souderton Community Park and taking advantage of all the amenities the park and the community has to offer. The pavilion in the Souderton Community Park can be reserved by calling the borough office for availability and information.
