Yardwaste Facility & Drop Off Center

North Lebanon Township started its yard waste facility in 2004 and is in its 20th season of operation.  Seeing a need for residents to have a place where they can dispose of brush, grass, and leaves, the Township went to the State Department of Environmental Protection and received approval to operate a yard waste facility.  Over the years, the NLT yard waste facility has increased in popularity and is a great service for our residents!

North Lebanon Township residents may purchase a key card to access the yardwaste facility for an annual fee. This fee is per calendar year and the money is used to defer the cost of maintaining the equipment used in the facility.

The NLT Yardwaste Facility is open Monday-Saturday within the seasonal hours below.

Spring/Summer 7am-8pm (Apr-Sept)

Fall/Winter    7am-5pm  (Oct-Mar)

2024 Yardwaste Permits now available.

  • Cost $50

Cards can be RENEWED in person at the Township Office or by completing a Residential Yardwaste form below and submitting the completed application along with $50 payment to the Township via the drop box. 

(New or replacement cards must be issued in person at the Township Office.)

Please DO NOT dump trash or unwanted items in the Yardwaste Facility!

There has been an increase in items other than yardwaste, cardboard, mixed paper, and newsprint being left in the NLT Yardwaste Facility (i.e. light bulbs, furniture, broken tools, etc). 

All instances of illegal dumping in the yardwaste facility are investigated.  Camera footage of the incident is captured and handed over to the NLT Police Dept which could result in fines and/or having yardwaste privileges permanently revoked. 

Thank you for your cooperation!


Grass clippings make up a large percentage of household waste produced each year and often the NLT Yardwaste Facility is overwhelmed with grass clippings.  Residents are encouraged to utilize grasscycling or home composting as as alternative to disposing of grass clipplings.  For more information on these methods, click below for a copy of Pa DEP’s Guide to Home Composting.

Recycling Drop-Off:

As part of a state recycling grant North Lebanon Township has purchased roll-off containers for both corrugated cardboard and mixed paper (glossy, magazines, office paper, junk mail). These roll-offs are placed south of the yardwaste facililty main gate and can be accessed from either inside or outside the facility.

All packaging materials must be removed from cardboard boxes.  DO NOT place styrofoam, packaging peanuts, bubble wrap, air pillows, or any other packaging materials in the cardboard or mixed paper container!

Please obey the instructional signage when dropping off your recyclables!
