Berks County > Municipalities > Upper Tulpehocken Township


Upper Tulpehocken Township residents and non-residents that would like to participate in the UTT Recycling Program are asked to complete the Recycling Application to obtain a key fob for entrance into the recycling center. This application may be found by hovering your cursor over 'Recycling' in the yellow box menu to the left.

Renewal and new payments may be made online via the link at the bottom of this page.

PLEASE NOTE: If the ID number on the back of your key fob is illegible, or you are applying for a new key fob, please enter zeroes as a place holder in that field when paying online.  

Please remember: Place items in designated bins. It is never appropriate to leave recyclables or any type of trash outside the drop-off containers. This ongoing practice creates added Township expenses. If the bin is full, please take your recyclables back home with you and contact the municipal office.
