The Bushkill Township Road Department is responsible for maintaining all Township roads. Bushkill Township has 60 miles of roads; we have gained additional mileage as housing development roads are dedicated to the Township. In addition to roads, the department is responsible for maintaining Township parks and open spaces.
The Township's yard waste disposal facility and waste oil disposal containers are located at the Public Works Department. Please note that a free permit is required for yard waste disposal and that grass clippings are not accepted at the facility.

The waste oil disposal containers are located at the rear of the Public Works Department building in a covered, outdoor containment facility. Waste oil may be disposed at any time. Waste oil should be carefully dumped from personal containers into the large waste oil tank. Please use care when transferring the oil as to not spill oil onto or around the tank. There is no charge or permit necessary for disposal of waste oil.
