New limits for transfer station

LOWER MERION TWP. The township transfer station is about to become pickier.

Under terms of a new agreement, effective Jan. 1, commercial trash vehicles won't be permitted at the station, which no longer will accept construction debris. In addition, TVs and monitors won't be accepted as of Wednesday.

The county is ending its Waste System Authority as of Dec. 31, and the township has entered into a five-year deal with Covanta Plymouth Renewable Energy L.P. for hauling and disposing waste.

Computers and printers will still be accepted for disposal at the transfer station, 1300 Woodbine Ave., Penn Valley. Periodically, the county will host events elsewhere for the disposal of electronic waste. As for construction debris, the township listed the following alternative sites:

Richard S. Burns & Co., 4300 Rising Sun Ave., Philadelphia.

L&S Demo Recycling Inc., 884 Brook Rd., Conshohocken.

Republic Services, 400 River Rd., West Conshohocken.

Waste Management, Philadelphia Transfer Station, 3605 Grays Ferry Ave., Philadelphia.

Republic Services, 2600 Orthodox St., Philadelphia.
