This year Plumstead Township is looking for donations for a few programs. We are working with Bucks County Children and Youth on two programs. Our Giving Tree Program accepts donations of NEW hats, mittens, gloves & scarves (program runs from 11/1 – 12/29/17); the PJ Program accepts donations of NEW pj’s, slippers, robes & books. Both of these programs help out local children who otherwise would not have a new pair of pj’s or a warm hat for the winter. We are also working with our Police Department in Shop with a Cop Program. This program pairs police officers with children whose family are currently going through a hardship and might not be able to afford toys for Christmas.
SHOP WITH A COP
All of these programs are funded by your generous donations and all donations stay local.

Important News About Open Burning..Effective February 22, 2012 the Township has officially rescinded its Open Burning Policy and will no longer issue permits. This action is a result of formal notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP) that we are a mandated community under Act 101 and thus any burning is regulated by the state and we cannot supersede its authority. Based on the state law, the only property owners permitted to burn are those considered to be "working farms", defined as the production of agricultural commodities in their unmanufactured state on the premises of the farm operation. Campfires and ceremonial fires are also permitted. Yard waste is NOT permitted to be burned. Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, garden residue, tree trimmings, chipped shrubbery, and other vegetative materials. Because the Township is a mandated community we are responsible for the enforcement of this Act, and will do what is necessary to ensure that the Township and our residents remain in compliance with it.(Because of the volume of inquiries, we have decided to leave this on the website.)
