Trash and Recycling

Borough of Bridgeport provides residential curbside trash and recycling collection through a third-party contractor, J.P. Mascaro & Sons. The annual fee for residential trash & recycling collection is $80 quarterly, or $320 annually. Berkheimer provides payment collection services for Bridgeport, and handles all billing inquiries, 610-588-0965. All qualified residences (single family units, multifamily units of 3 or fewer) are obligated to utilize the Borough's contracted service.

Please note that while all residential properties of less than four units utilize this service; all multifamily units of four or greater must contract with their own private hauler. Both trash and recycling are collected once a week on Tuesdays. Collection begins at 7:00 am, so please make sure that trash and recycling are placed at the curb on Monday nights, no earlier than 4:00 pm. Use plastic or metal trash cans. All trash should be bagged, please do not put out trash in paper bags, cardboard boxes, or containers smaller than 20 gallons. These cause litter, especially on windy days!

On the left hand margin of this page, you will see blue tabs that contain other important information regarding trash and recycling collection, including information on yard waste and Christmas Tree disposal. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact Borough Hall.
