The Local Services Board of Aweres recently began funding recyclable material collection of cardboard, cans and plastics in our area. GT Waste Systems currently holds the contract for this service with most areas in the Township either receiving weekly curbside pickup or access to specified drop-off locations.
To better organize recyclable material collection, cardboard will be picked up on alternating weeks from cans and plastics. The following schedule outlines which materials are picked up during which week and days.
