The Borough of Emmaus contracts with Whitetail for refuse and recyclable collection. However, the Borough does not arrange for collection via dumpsters, which need to be arranged by the entity desiring dumpster service. If you obtain dumpster service from Whitetail, there is no need to file a form indicating that.
However, if you use an Independent Hauler, which is any refuse contractor other than Whitetail, you need to complete the Commercial Entity Dumpster Form (PDF) and file it with the Borough Manager’s Office.
Reduced Refuse Rate Application
Additionally, if you are over the age of 65 or disabled, and of a low income, you may qualify for a reduced refuse rate. If you believe that you may qualify for the discount, file the Reduced Rate Refuse Application (PDF) with the Office of the Borough Manager, who will determine if you meet the qualifications.
