Reminder – Waste Management Update

We have been working with Waste Management over the past couple of weeks. We ask that you pay the billed amount and you will receive a credit on next quarter’s invoice. The quarterly amount going forward should be in the $64.00 range. We will confirm as soon as we know.

Also we would like to remind residents that it is a Township Ordinance to comply with SEC. 10-28. MUNICIPAL COLLECTION PROGRAM.

All collectible municipal waste generated or present within the Township shall be collected, transported, and disposed of by the Township or its Contractor with the exception of industrial, commercial properties and apartment buildings containing five or more units.

This shall include but not be limited to restaurants, hotels, cafes, garden type apartments or condominium complexes, apartment buildings, clubs, wholesale and retail fruit and produce dealers, warehouses, wholesale houses, stores, business places and industrial complexes which shall be responsible and arrange for the collection and disposal of their solid waste at their expense.

The Township held a contract bid for Disposal Services in order keep truck traffic to a minimum and having trash sitting out everyday of the week.. Waste Management was the lowest responsible bidder. As a residential property owner you are required to use the Township’s selected contractor.

Waste Management Service Increase

Attention Residents,

We have received numerous calls regarding the Waste Management bills for the new year. The contracted increase amount was to be approximately 2 percent. We have a call into Waste Management to see how the new bills were calculated as they reflect a 17% increase.

Last night the Commissioners directed me to tell the residents to hold off on paying their current invoices until we get this matter resolved.

Thank you,

Craig Lloyd
Township Manager
