Residents have the option of using a composting service called Waste Well. Waste Well picks up food scraps from customers and delivers them to a composting processing facility. Each spring, their customers receive a lot of finished compost as well. Find more information.



Depending on where your property is located, you may have public water through the Chester Water Authority although most properties in the township have an on-site well. For service on your well equipment, you will generally find a label on your water tank from the firm that performed the original installation. Other firms may be found searching for "well drilling" in the telephone directory.
