Earl Township is in the enviable position of having a good deal of money in its’ bank account. Therefore, the Township provides various services to all residents at no charge.
Each year the Township Supervisors approve a sizable donation to both the Boyertown Ambulance and the Oley Ambulance. In exchange for the donation, both ambulance services have agreed to transport Earl residents.
However the following conditions apply:
- You or your family member must reside in Earl Township and you or your family member must be transported from Earl Township to a local hospital
- Transportation to the hospital must be by either Boyertown Ambulance or Oley Ambulance, these are the only two companies with which we have agreements
- You must submit the ambulance bill to your insurance company, if there is any remaining balance you will have to call the ambulance company. Tell them that you are an Earl Township resident and they will write off the remaning balance
Trash is a free service for Earl Township residents!
We’d like to remind all township residents that our trash collection drivers and helpers will pick up no more than 3 bags or two cans of trash every week. Your trash should be put out the night before pick-up or by 7am on the day of pick-up to ensure that you are not missed. They will not take any bulk items, construction materials, yard waste or hazardous waste. Should you have any of these items, please call our trash hauler (currently A.J.Blosenski at 610-942-2707) for the fees and to make arrangements. The other option is to call the Landfill (610-367-2373) to make arrangements to drop bulk items off there.
The Township does not contract with anyone to collect recycling. If you are interested in recycling, you may take your glass, aluminum, tin cans, plastic and paper to the Landfill* and deposit in the provided containers. Or contact Mark Mountz at 484-256-1251 to see if he is still offering curbside recycling at a fee.

Free Flu Shots for Earl Township Residents.
Flu Shot Vouchers are now available at the Earl Township Office.
New this year, along with the vouchers, will be a consent form which must be presented at the time of vaccination.
We’d like to share a recent update from the CDC that states:
“You should get a flu vaccine before flu viruses begin spreading in your community, since it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against flu. Make plans to get vaccinated early in fall, before flu season begins. CDC recommends that people get a flu vaccine by the end of October. However, getting vaccinated early (for example, in July or August) is likely to be associated with reduced protection against flu infection later in the flu season, particularly among older adults. Children who need two doses of vaccine to be protected should start the vaccination process sooner, because the two doses must be given at least four weeks apart.”
We’ve been informed that this year, children three (3) years and older are eligible to receive the flu vaccine. However, their vaccinations will only be given at The Medicine Shoppe not on the drive-thru day. Please note that the Township will only pay for the initial vaccination for children that need two doses, the payment for the second dose will be the respon- sibility of the parent or guardian.
