Solid Waste And Recycling Ordinance
It has now been 5 months since the Solid Waste And Recycling Ordinance became effective. The implementation of the Ordinance has gone smoothly and both the Haulers have complied with the spirit and the letter of the Ordinance.
There have been some violations of the restrictions on when the Haulers may operate in the Township. When these have been brought to our attention, we have contacted the Haulers and without exception they have agreed to inform the drivers that they should not be in the Township before 6 A. M. and after dusk.
Periodically, we receive calls or emails informing us that Haulers are in the neighborhoods before 6:00 A. M. We want you to know that 6:00 A. M. means 6:00 A. M., not shortly before 6:00 A. M. Please do not hesitate to email us () when you notice violations of the Ordinance.
