Township-Wide Garbage & Recycling Program

Township-Wide Garbage & Recycling Program: What You Need To Know

Our Township-Wide Garbage & Recycling Program will begin on Tuesday, January 2nd. (There will be no garbage pickup in the North Zone on Monday, January 1st due to the holiday.)

Please follow the cart service procedures noted below and listed on the flyer that you received along with garbage/recycling carts and in the mail:

  • Garbage, recycling and bulk should be placed curbside the night before your collection day. The North Zone curbside garbage collection days are on Mondays and Thursdays, beginning on Thursday, January 4th. The South Zone garbage collections days are on Tuesdays and Fridays, beginning on Tuesday, January 2nd.  To view the curbside garbage, recycling and bulk collection schedule for the month of January, please click HERE.
  • Cart handles should face house
  • Only garbage and recycling materials inside the carts will be collected
  • Minimum 3 feet clearance from cart to objects (i.e. parked cars, mailboxes, light poles, etc.)
  • You can add your house number to your carts with removable stickers (similar to what you would put on your mailbox)

The first recycling pickup will be on Wednesday, January 3rd in the North Zone and on Wednesday, January 10th in the South Zone. Recyclables should be loose inside the carts, not in plastic bags. Click HERE for additional recycling information.
