The Township’s Solid Waste Fee Senior Rebate Program is offered to persons 65 years of age or older as of January 1 of the current year who are solely responsible for payment of a solid waste fee for a property which they occupy as their principal residence and whose prior year's annual household income would qualify them to participate in the Pharmaceutical Assistance Contract for the Elderly (PACE) or the Pharmaceutical Assistance Contract for the Elderly Needs Enhancement Tier (PACENET) programs sponsored by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Such persons may, on or before September 30 of the current year, apply for a rebate with respect to that payment equal to 20% of the annual solid waste fee for one 45 gallon container. The rebate will first be applied to any prior year solid waste fee, including interest, penalty and costs, then due and owing, and the balance, if any, will then be remitted to the applicant.

To qualify for the Solid Waste Fee Senior Citizen Rebate Program applicants must meet ALL FIVE of the following eligibility requirements:

  • I have paid my current year Solid Waste Fee to the Township.

  • I am sixty-five (65) years of age or older as of the current year.

  • I did not select the Mini-Can option for my refuse receptacle.

  • My prior year gross annual household income allows me to participate in one of the Pharmaceutical Assistance Contract for the Elderly Programs (PACE or PACENET) sponsored by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Current guidelines for income, excluding the Annual Medicare Part B payment of $1,258.80 per person, are $23,500 or less for a single person and $31,500 or less for a married couple.

    For further PACE/PACENET information please visit: http://www.aging.pa.gov

  • I am the property owner or the person primarily responsible for the payment of the Solid Waste Fee to the Township.
