What is the right-of-way?
The right-of-way consists of the street plus a strip on each side for curbs, sidewalks and utilities such as electric cables; telephone, water and gas lines; and sewers. For shade trees, the important dimension is the distance from the curb to the edge of the right-of-way. This distance varies from street to street and also sometimes within the same street. A property owner who wishes to determine whether a specific tree is within the right-of-way may obtain this information from the Township Arborist at 610-667-1590 ext 240.
What is solid waste?
Typical household refuse and trash excluding recyclables.
