Trash Collection Moves to Once Per Week

Both trash and recyclables will now be collected only on Fridays.

Did you get a lot of spring cleaning done this weekend? Well, don't haul all of that trash to the curb just yet. 

. Starting today, May 1, residents will only receive trash pickup once per week.

Both trash and recyclables will now be collected on Fridays, by separate trucks. Yard waste will be collected on Mondays.

For all of the particulars regarding rules and regulations regarding the new trash and collection across the township, read a copy of the ordinance posted in the pdf section of this article.

Look John and Jane Taxpayer, this is YOUR township. There are ways to protest this. Government is supposed to be in place for YOU -- YOUR voice. Organize a legal protest and see what other LEGAL options you have. But to bring your trash to a meeting is simply wrong. I'd make sure those who did such a childish action be forced to place it back in their vehicles or get a summons. Avoid "knee-jerk" reactions here people and think this through.

It is June 1, 2012 Friday night and our (and neighbors) trash STILL has not been picked up yet. What is going on?!

I called about this. For certain holidays (such as Memorial Day), trash/recylcing pickup is pushed to Saturday. Although I do not remember reading this in the pamphlet, it is mentioned on the site that was linked from the township site.

Well here it is Saturday June 2nd and our trash has still not been picked up. So much for saving $15 a year by going to once a week trash/recycling. At 5:30AM our recycling was finally picked up and I thought they could not start before 6:00AM. Great job saving us $15. Wonder how long the trash will sit there today.
