WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HOUSEHOLD OR COMMERCIAL/INDUSTRIAL HAZARDOUS WASTE?
The township holds a Household Hazardous Waste Day during Residential Spring Clean-Up Week for residential household hazardous waste.
We ask residents to not include their household hazardous waste amoung regular waste.
The township does not pick-up, or allow the drop-off, of commercial/industrial hazardous waste. An alternative method must be found through another third-party.

The timed waste pickup occurs on Tuesday of each week. The business pays a fee based on the length of time required for Public Works staff to complete the collection.
