During trash clean out week, Abington Township will take everything that you put out in your regular trash cart plus any additional normal trash placed in store-purchased refuse bags. Each residence can put out as much normal household trash as they want. The excess trash is to be placed next to your automated trash cart. This surplus trash must be in plastic garbage bags and cannot weigh more than 30 lbs. per bag. Any trash weighing more than 30 lbs. will be left curbside.
