Garbage pickup in the Township is private.  You may contact the garbage hauler of your choice.  Listings of garbage haulers can be found in the telephone book yellow pages or online.

Please remember to keep the lids on your garbage cans to prevent garbage from blowing around and making neighborhoods look untidy.  Also, remember to recycle!  Your garbage bills can be less if you keep your recyclables out of the garbage.  How?  Your garbage hauler might not have to pickup your garbage as frequently and will be picking up less garbage.  Some garbage haulers base their fee on how much garbage you generate and how frequently you need to be picked up.  If that’s the case, recycling will not only help the environment, but your pocketbook too!
