through the township. Recyclables are
collected by Republic Services on the first Wednesday of each month. When the regularly scheduled collection day
falls on or after a holiday in that week, service will be provided one day
later. Materials must be set out the night before collection. This service is for residential homes only.

The following recycling items can be comingled together: Plastic
bottles and containers, metal cans, clear and colored glass, newspapers, paper,
