All residents are reminded to contact the Code Office at

610-534-4803 for permit information and requirements

before commencing any new construction or alterations.


Residents are also reminded that sidewalks and any

common access driveways must be cleared of snow or ice no

later than twenty-four (24) hours after the snow has

ceased to fall. Piling of snow in the street is strictly prohibited.


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 according to the regulations listed in the ordinance.

Residents are reminded never to blow grass clippings in

the street. Doing so clogs the sewer inlets and can lead to

roadway flooding. If you employ a landscaper, please

pass this information along – your neighbors will thank you!



Improper management of discarded needles and other sharp

items can pose a health risk to the public and our Public Works



Township Ordinance requires needles and other sharp items

to be placed inside a hard, plastic container, such as a detergent

bottle, with a screw-on cap or tightly secured lid. We ask that you

label the container “Not for Recycling” and place it 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. When pet waste is left on the ground, rain and snowmelt

can wash it into storm drains or directly into waterways. This

“stormwater runoff” can contaminate our sources of drinking

water. Animal waste breeds harmful bacteria promotes excessive

plant growth, and causes algae blooms, which can kill fish and

other animals.

to obtain the necessary information before going to settlement.


Any other questions regarding codes or ordinances, please contact

the office at 610-534-4803.
