Solebury Township Plans Major April Roadside Cleanup - One of Solebury’s long standing traditions is to celebrate the arrival of spring by organizing community volunteers to help clean up our Township’s roadways.
This year, a major roadside cleanup is being planned by Solebury Township’s Environmental Advisory Council and the newly formed Coalition of Solebury Watershed Associations (comprised of Aquetong, Paunacussing, Pidcock and Primrose) whose mission is to promote awareness and active participation ofthe community in the stewardship of the land and water resources of Solebury Township.
We are seeking volunteers to help with the cleanup on Sunday, April 12th (rain date Sunday, April 19th) from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
On the morning of April 12th, volunteers will gather at one of four locations. The meeting locations for each watershed are:
- Aquetong Creek Watershed at Bucks County Audubon Society’s Visitor Center, 2877 Creamery Road, New Hope, PA
- Paunacussing Creek Watershed at Tinsman Brothers Lumber, 6632 Old Carversville Road, Lumberville, PA
- Pidcock Creek Watershed at 6079 Pidcock Creek Road,New Hope, PA
- Primrose Creek Watershed at McGill’s Hill, 10 Chapel Road, New Hope, PA
We ask all volunteers to arrive and check in at their registered location from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. where they will receive their road assignments and gather trash bags, gloves and safety vests provided by PennDOT and Solebury Township.
We hope you will help us keep Solebury Township beautiful by contributing two hours of your time on the roadside cleanup day. By working together, we will make a big difference. Thank you!

Warmer weather brings us in closer contact with native wildlife, which includes the occasional black bear. If you see a bear, remain calm, make noise and slowly back away. Be sure to report any bear sightings in the Township to Solebury Township Police at 215-348-7400.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission has some precautions you can take to help keep bears away from residential areas:
The Solebury Township Police Department will be taking prescription drugs for safe disposal on April 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at two locations: The Solebury Township Police Station at 3092 Sugan Road, and at Giant Market at Logan Square on Route 202.
The iniative provides a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of old or leftover prescription drugs, preventing them from being flushed into local waterways, and educating the general public about the potential for medication abuse.
