Residential Refuse and Recycle
Municipal Waste: Trash collection service is necessary for every residential dwelling unit (including individual apartments). It is your responsibility, as a home-owner and/or resident, to contact the Township’s contracted waste hauler to initiate an active service account. All residential trash and recycling will be collected curbside by the Township’s designated hauler. The current designated hauler is Waste Management (www.wm.com or 1-800-433-7317). Extra Trash Tags are available at the township building for $4.00 each. Should you have electronics, such as TV’s and computer components, contact Washington Township 717-762-4413; you can no longer dispose of these items in your trash.
