TRASH SERVICE RULES 4 BAGS or CANS
Township Commissioners, in an effort to control costs, have approved a new trash service, effective January 1, that changes from unlimited trash collection to a four-bag or four-can limit. It also eliminates yard waste service by the trash/recyclables collector.
Under the new three year contract with Penn Waste of York, the 32 or 36 gallon bags or cans must weigh no more than 60 pounds each. Residents may buy extra orange bags at $ 3.50 a bag if they exceed the four-bag limit. Bags can be purchased at the Township Building or directly from Penn Waste, P.O. Box 3066, York 17402. Bags can also be ordered on the Penn Waste website, www.pennwaste.com
Penn Waste said that because it increased the items that could be recycled beginning last June, less trash has been generated in the Township.
Commissioners said the quarterly trash rate will remain at $ 46.50 a quarter this year. The said four bids were received, and Penn Waste, which serviced the Township under the last contract, was the lowest responsible bidder.
