Trash Service

Summer 2023 Update -The Township is aware of the trash/recycling issues that many of our residents have been facing recently. The Township is in contact with our trash hauler(s), having asked for their plans on how to rectify the issues with delayed pickup and other various issues customers are having with their trash hauler(s).

We understand the frustration that our residents are feeling during this time. Please know that Township staff is doing all that they can to keep in close contact with your trash hauler(s), asking that they work to continue the trash hauling services our residents expect and deserve.
