Trash and Recycling Update

The Township’s bidding process for trash and recycling services has been completed.  

Trash and recycling services include not only the hauling of residential trash and recycling but the cost to dispose of those items at local licensed sites.  

At the conclusion of receiving all bids for not only the hauling of trash & recycling but the disposal of these materials, the Township has been able to enter into agreements that are far more positive than we first thought would be possible.

With the acceptation of our lowest bidder, trash and recycling services will increase by 33% from $266/year to $350/year.  

As the Township bills quarterly, residents will see an increase of $66/quarter to $87.50/quarter.

Weekly pickup schedules will not change, and bulk pickup weeks will be scheduled four times a year.  The Township is still working towards a program to provide yard waste pick ups and white good removal; updates will be given when possible.

We realize any increase poses various challenges to all and the Township worked very hard to keep the increase to a minimum.

*Please note, the October 2023 quarterly bill will reflect the new pricing.
