What to expect during the Yard Waste Drop-off Day

The Lower Makefield Township yard waste drop-off site will be open several days throughout the year for LMT residents to use.  A contractor working on behalf of a LMT resident can also visit the site.

  • We will have an employee looking in the beds/backs of vehicles to ensure only yard waste is coming into the yard. They will also record license plate numbers so we can keep track of number of users and repeat visitors. You will also need to show your ID with your address to verify place of residence.
  • The number of vehicles permitted down in the yard at one time in order to manage “traffic” in the yard.
  • We will have employees in the yard to direct traffic where the vehicles are to drop off yard waste.
  • We will have another employee operating the front loader to push the pile as it gets larger. This will help ensure an orderly process of where vehicles are dumping.

Any vehicles with items not permitted will not be allowed into the yard to dump.
