Take Pride in YOUR Community!  Alsace Township’s annual Spring Cleanup will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at 65 Woodside Avenue (at the Public Works yard behind the Municipal Building).  The Spring Cleanup gives residents a great opportunity to clean up their property and rid themselves of unwanted items.

We are happy to welcome back Boy Scout Troop 508, Frontier District, Hawk Mountain Council, who will assist with traffic control and offloading of materials at the event.

It would be impossible to list all of the “Do’s and Don’ts, so items include, but are not limited to the following:

DO Bring:

scrap metal
un-mounted tires – up to 19” (limit 2)

Do NOT Bring:NO symbol

used motor oil
paint cans
propane tanks
NO large truck tires over 19”
NO cut tires of any size

Feel free to call the Township if you are not sure your item(s) will be accepted at the Spring Cleanup.  We would rather hear from you than you have to load up your vehicle and take it home.  Give us a call at 610-929-5324.

The Township is interested in individuals who are interested in preserving Alsace Township’s history for the generations to come!  A meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 2:00 pm at the Township Municipal Building located at 65 Woodside Avenue.

The purpose of the meeting is to develop a plan to collect historical photos and stories about the Township and a plan as to their preservation.  We also need people who can provide information about the Township and its history.  Before the “old stories” are gone and photos faded, we want to capture Alsace’s wonderful history for the future!  So, if you have a piece of history to share, please join us as we create this new “History Group”.

We will also discuss future meetings and what days and times are good for those who join the Alsace Township History Group.

Bring your ideas and photos!  See you there!
