Sustainability Acheivements

West Chester Borough has long been a leader in environmental and sustainable practices from being one of the first communities in Pennsylvania to implement curbside recycling to replacing all streetlights with LED to most recently committing to going 100% renewable energy by 2035. Borough elected officials and staff are dedicated to creating and fostering a sustainable community for our residents and community members.
