The Township enacted an ordinance whereby owners of
rental units within the Township are required to secure an
annual certificate of use for each occupied or unoccupied
dwelling unit pursuant to the regulations listed in the ordinance.
Improper management of discarded needles and other sharps
can pose a health risk to the public and our personnel.
Township Ordinance requires needles and other sharps be
placed inside a hard, plastic container, such as a detergent bottle,
with a screw on cap or tightly secured lid. Label the container
“Not for Recycling” and place out with your regular trash.
Failure to follow the proper guidelines will result in fines
ranging from $300 to $1,000 per occurrence.
Residents in Ridley Township are required by ordinance to clean
up after their pet while walking their dog along streets or in public parks. Studies by the Center for Watershed Protection has
found that bacteria from dog waste forms a significant part of non-point source pollution in suburban stormwater.
Residents are asked to do their part in keeping our streams and
public areas clean by picking up and disposing of dog waste.
