In an effort to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19, all non-essential commission and committee meetings have been canceled until mid-May. Any organization that would meet in the township building will cancel or move their meeting. The Board of Supervisors, however, will meet as scheduled.
If you have township business, you are requested to contact the office by phone, email or the US Mail, rather than visiting the office in person.
The following resolution was adopted by the Board of Supervisors at their meeting on March 11, 2020.
In an effort to protect the health of the citizens of East Nantmeal Township, Township employees and officials related to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, I move to impose the following policies regarding public meetings and the use of the Township building:
Except for meetings of the Board of Supervisors, all meetings of Commissions and Committees of the Township and other Township-sponsored groups that utilize the Township building and meeting room are cancelled.
Outside groups that are scheduled or utilize the Township building, for example Garden Club, are prohibited from using the building and meeting room.
Municipal employees should avoid non-essential meetings and limit their exposure to the public to the extent feasible.
Persons having business with the Township should use reasonable efforts to avoid personal visits to the Township office during business hours and communicate by telephone, email and USPS mail.
Persons who have health problems, compromised or weak immune systems, recently visited foreign countries with confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus and the elderly should avoid visiting the Township offices and attending Board meetings.
The Township website shall be updated and the Township building shall be posted with these policies and recommendations.
These policies will remain in effect until the May Board meeting, May 13, 2020, when they will be reevaluated.
Chester County municipalities are hosting TWO (2) Household Hazardous Waste Collection events for Chester County residents: Saturday, April 4 at CAT Pickering, Center for Arts and Technology Campus, (Technical College High School), 1580 Charlestown Road in Phoenixville, and Saturday, April 18 at the Octorara High School parking lot, 226 Highland Road in Atglen. The collection sites will be open at 9:00 AM and will close at 3:00 PM sharp.
NO ELECTRONICS, COMPUTERS, TVs OR APPLIANCES WILL BE ACCEPTED. NO ITEMS CONTAINING FREON WILL BE ACCEPTED. Additional unacceptable materials include, but are not limited to: latex paint, used motor oil, tires, asbestos, explosives, propane, Helium or gas cylinders, household alkaline batteries, PCB’s, large drums, ammunition, and waste that is medical, infectious, radioactive, commercial, industrial or unidentified.
No more than 220 pounds or 25 gallons of hazardous product per household will be accepted. Common acceptable products include oil paint, aerosols, pesticides, swimming pool chemicals, gasoline, rechargeable batteries, flammables, and fluorescent bulbs.
Residents are cautioned not to mix substances, and to package them securely in a box or crate. Please take your boxes and reusable containers back home.
Last year, more than 200,000 pounds of materials were safely collected at Chester County’s events. To help reduce costs, residents can:
- Purchase the smallest quantity you will need to avoid leftovers.
- Substitute less toxic ingredients for some pesticides and cleaning products.
- Choose the least toxic product.
LATEX PAINT IS NOT HAZARDOUS WASTE! Residents should not bring latex paint to Household Hazardous Waste Collection events. Solidify latex paint by either air drying small quantities or pouring the paint into a plastic trash bag with sawdust, clay-based kitty litter or rags and placing the bag and the open can in the trash after the paint is solidified. Paint hardener may also be purchased at hardware stores. Only oil based paint is accepted at the Household Hazardous Waste collections.
