Township recycling services are aware of the road closures and working around them as much as possible to maintain the normal schedule. Follow your regular schedule but if your recycling is not picked up please wait until the next scheduled pick up.

The next yard waste collection is Nov. 21. An additional yard waste date is being considered and if one is scheduled, there will be an announcement on the township website and community bulletin board.
