Household Hazardous Waste Collection Schedule

Bucks County is hosting five household hazardous waste recycling events this spring and summer, in Warrington, Bristol, Bedminster and Richland townships.

Pesticides, paints, weed killer—toxic chemicals are found in many household products, and when they are no longer needed they need to be disposed of safely. Every year the county sponsors recycling events for residents to responsibly discard these hazardous materials.

Please note that no electronics, including televisions and computers, will be accepted this year due to a change in state law. This program is available to residents only; no material will be accepted from businesses, industry or institutions.

For more information on the event, this flyer (PDF) lists the various materials that will be accepted, and dates and locations for these events.

River Road Lane Closures Begin April 3

Weekday lane closures are scheduled on Route 32 (River Road) between Lower York Road and Chapel Road in Solebury Township starting Monday, April 3, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., as part of the Township’s $1.5 million project to create the Solebury Route 202 Gateway Trail.

The weekday lane closures will be in effect through the fall.

The Solebury Route 202 Gateway Trail will provide a 10-foot-wide, shared-use trail for pedestrians and bicyclists. This new section makes several safety improvements along River Road, including a dedicated left turn lane at the Route 202 intersection, curb ramps and crosswalks, and extensive signage. Work is expected to be completed this fall.

From Monday, April 3, through Friday, April 7, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., the left lane in each direction will be closed for concrete median removal and asphalt replacement. The right lane in each direction will be closed beginning Friday, April 7, and remain closed for the duration of the project for shoulder widening and trail installation.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area because slowdowns may occur. The work schedule is dependent on the weather.

James D Morrissey Inc. of Philadelphia is the general contractor on this improvement contract that is financed with 100 percent federal funds.

River Road Trail Construction Begins April 3

Work begins on April 3 to build the connecting trail between Canal Park and the Route 202 Cross County Trail. The 0.3 mile off-road path along River Road will provide a 10-foot-wide, shared-use trail for pedestrians and bicyclists, separated from traffic by grass buffers.

This project is the most structurally-intensive of the Township's long-term plans to create a connected system of trails that is safe and respectful of the environment and our history. This new section makes several safety improvements along River Road, including a dedicated left turn lane at the Route 202 intersection, curb ramps and crosswalks, and extensive signage. Work is expected to be completed by September 2017.

The Township has worked closely with federal, state and county officials to secure permits and funding for the project, including a $1.7 million grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, federal matching funds and private developer fees.
