Through the cooperation and commitment of our residents, such efforts as curbside recycling, collection, use of a recycling drop-off center and Cameron Tract and separate pickups for leaves, grass, Christmas trees and white goods, the Township has greatly reduced landfill disposal costs.

Our trash contractor will do its best to pick up trash and recyclables during bad weather. Your patience and cooperation is needed when inclement weather occurs. Do not place containers in the street. If the streets and alleys cannot be accessed due to poor road conditions, residents may be asked to relocate their containers to a more accessible site.
