From Pottstown – take Rt. 422 Bypass West. Bypass ends in Douglassville as it turns into business 422. Keep on 422 West through Douglassville and keep going until you reach Rt. 345. Make a left on Rt. 345, go straight through the first light and make your first right into the landfill. There are stone gates and (3) flag poles at entrance.
