To assist residents in their recycling efforts, recycling totes can be easily requested through our finance department. We encourage you to reach out to the City of Coatesville directly at 610-384-0300. Owners of properties are required to use either a dumpster service or totes for solid waste and recycling pickup, depending on City Ordinance criteria. City ordinances require standardized totes and therefore all totes are obtained through the Finance Department in City Hall. For those owners or residents responsible to replace waste or recycling totes, the following forms should be utilized. These forms are available at City Hall as well. Once completed, the forms should be turned into the finance department with payment.
Owners may purchase repair lid kits or repair wheel kits. The care and pickup of totes and repair kits are the responsibility of the owner; however, the Finance Department will work with Public Works to deliver the tote(s) purchased, or the requested repair kit parts. Currently, the cost for totes or the repair kits can be determined by viewing the fee schedule.
Please note that requests to purchase additional sets of totes beyond the individual set of totes required for each unit requires the owners signature since an additional annual hauling fee is required. For the year of purchase the fee is due at the time of purchasing the totes, with subsequent years being included in the annual real estate/solid waste invoice.
For those owners who recently purchased a property requiring totes, you should expect the seller to have left a set (or for landlords a set for each unit). If none were left, the buyer is responsible for purchasing totes.
Owners with over three units in a single dwelling are required to contract directly with a private hauler. If there is insufficient space for dumpsters, owners are requested to contact the Finance Department to discuss alternatives.
All owners are strongly encouraged to purchase stick-on numbers and letters to personalize the totes for their address/unit number.
Our team will be happy to assist you and provide you with the necessary information to facilitate proper waste disposal and recycling in your area. Together, we can contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable Coatesville.
