Bucks County Announces 2014 Household Hazardous Waste & Electronics Recycling Drop-Off Dates & Locations
What do you do with household hazardous wastes and electronics in your home when it is necessary to dispose of them? The Southeastern Pennsylvania Regional Household Hazardous Waste & Electronics Collection Program is for you.
The collection program consists of at least twenty-five collection days scheduled throughout southeastern Pennsylvania of which eight are scheduled in Bucks County. The program is for residents only; no material will be accepted from businesses, industry or institutions.
This is a regional program as the counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia are working together to make the program more convenient to the residents in southeastern Pennsylvania. As a result, the residents of Bucks County are welcome to take their household hazardous waste or electronics to one of the neighboring county collection events if that date or location is more convenient. Please verify the details of the Non-Bucks events; some will also only be taking paints or only be taking TVs and electronics. All collections are held on Saturday’s from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. unless noted otherwise, rain or shine.
Town Watch Meeting Scheduled for Tuesday, July 22nd
The next meeting of the Town Watch group will be held on Tuesday, July 22 at Perkasie Borough Hall beginning at 7:00 pm. Those interested in helping their community, or those that frequently walk or jog around Perkasie and/ or Sellersville or in the parks are encouraged to participate!

Perkasie Borough's Electric Stays On; Sends Mutual Aid to Lansdale
Sometimes the anticipation of a storm ends up causing more anxiety and headaches than the actual weather event. That was not the case with the snow and ice storm that rolled through the area on a Tuesday night and Wednesday of the first few days of February. With heavy snow already covering the trees, several more inches of snow was predicted, followed by a thick coating of slick ice and eventually stronger winds. Please click here for more.
In a move initiated by Council Member Matt Aigeldinger, Perkasie Borough elected officials sent a loud and clear message to residents, business owners, and developers welcoming improvements, growth and development in the town. At their meeting on Monday, January 20th, the nine-member Borough Council voted unanimously to approve a new fee schedule for 2014 that cuts many building, zoning, and subdivision & land development fees by 50% for the remainder of the year.
All of the fees included in the reduction are listed on the Borough’s website. Building and construction fees for residential construction, additions, garages, and accessory buildings, including demolition and roof permits, have been cut in half. Electrical, mechanical and plumbing permits were also reduced. Please click here for more information.

Residents are reminded to set their trash curbside on the scheduled collection date no earlier than 6:00 pm the night before and no later than 7:00 am the day of collection. When the weather is extremely cold or inclement, the Department may send out two collection trucks at 7:00 am and complete the route much earlier than normal. There are no callbacks for trash or recycling that is set out after 7:00 am. Please call the Borough at (215) 257-5065 with any questions about this policy or click here to read more about the program.
You know the bottles of medicine in your medicine cabinet that you haven’t a clue what to do with? Now you have an easy solution. Bring your unused, unwanted, and expired medication to the new permanent prescription drop box located at the Perkasie Police Station.The box is located inside the police station lobby. The Borough Council partnered with the Bucks County District Attorney's Office and the Upper Bucks Health Community Healthy Youth Coalition to purchase the box. The hope is that members of the community will safely dispose of their drugs in this box instead of flushing them down the toilet or leaving them where they could be stolen or abused by someone other than the person they were prescribed to originally.
Before this year, residents could reach out to Council members privately through the telephone or e-mail, but actual dialogue during public meetings was limited. A "Public Forum" is held at the beginning and end of each meeting which allows residents to comment but not dialogue with individual members of Council.
The new Constituent Outreach Committee gives residents and businesses owners the opportunity to dialogue with current members of Council in a public meeting. Council members Steve Pizzollo (Ward 1), Justin Stottlar (Ward 2), and Jim Ryder (Ward 3) were appointed to the new Committee. Meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of every other month.
The Pennsylvania Covered Device Recycling Act was enacted in 2010 and requires consumers to keep covered devices, such as computers, laptops, monitors, and televisions, out of the trash. Please click here for more information on recycling these devices.
