Berks Street Yard Waste Facility - Free Mulch

Again this year, the Palmer Township Public Works Department will load mulch for free at the Berks Street Yard Waste Facility on the following Saturdays (weather permitting) from12 noon to 4:00 p.m., while supplies last:  April 7, 14, 21, 28, May 5, 12, 19, 26, June 2, July 7, August 4 and September 1. The township provides no statement or warranty on the mulch's quality.


Help Shape the Future

Should that patch of farmland or open space in your town be developed for homes, manufacturing, ecommerce facilities or just left alone? Should municipal planners spend money on highways or more trails, and how soon should we prepare for driverless cars?


The future of the Lehigh Valley is being shaped right now, and this is your chance to weigh in. The Lehigh Valley Planning Commission is distributing a 24-question survey to get public input that can help the LVPC as it writes a new Regional Comprehensive Plan that is designed to guide how the Lehigh Valley should grow in the coming decades.


Those who take the survey are eligible to win a $50 gift card. The survey will remain open through the end of March.  Click here to take the survey!


Help Lessen the Impact of the Next Disaster

There's no predicting when the Lehigh Valley will see the kind of damaging floods it saw in 2006, or the punishing winds that Superstorm Sandy brought in 2012, but being prepared requires planning now  -  and your help is needed.  The first public meeting to help update the Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. February 20, at Pinebrook Family Answers, 402 N. Fulton Street, Allentown.  Click here for details.


Palmer Environmental Steering Committee Looking for New Members

Palmer’s Environmental Steering Committee (ESC) currently has openings for new members. This long-standing and very successful group has been involved in recycling, Earth Day Litter Clean-ups, household hazardous waste and electronics collection events, along with numerous other projects.  Monthly meetings are held at the Palmer Library, 6:30 p.m., the fourth Wednesday of every month except November and December.  If you’d like more information, feel free to stop by one of these meetings or contact Cindy Oatis, Recycling Coordinator, at


Township Metering Study

Please be advised that beginning on Monday, March 13, 2017, Flow Assessment Services will begin a metering study for Palmer Township.  This metering study will last approximately one year and Flow Assessment Service employees will be seen throughout Palmer Township during this time.  Flow Assessment Service employees may need access to manholes within Palmer Township right-of -ways and easements.  If they must access a manhole at the rear yard of property owners, they will be accompanied by Palmer Township employees.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Municipal Building at 610-253-7191.
