Township Services

Pocopson Township is a small suburban community that does not provide some of the services that are customary in larger municipalities.

Pocopson Does

  • Provide fire and emergency services to its residents through two local fire companies. Other local townships have similar arrangements.
  • Maintain Township roads, parks and facilities (Public Works Department).
  • Provide annual curbside services including chipping, leaf bag pickup, and Christmas tree removal.

Pocopson Does Not

  • Maintain a police force.  We rely on the services of the State Police.
  • Provide trash, water or sewer services. Most residents rely on on-site septic and well water, and trash is collected by private haulers.
