Use Recycle Coach to answer your trash and recycling questions!Township trash and recycling collection occurs each Tuesday. The Township participates in a Pay-As-You-Throw program that requires residents to place all trash in Township trash bags. WWT trash bags are 33-gallon bags.

Each Tuesday, the following items will be collected at the curb.

  • Trash in WWT trash bags
  • Recycling in a rigid-walled container. Recyclable items can be mixed in one container.
  • One bulk item per week

General Collection Guidelines

  • Place recyclables and waste at the curb by 6 a.m. of the collection day; we strongly recommend that you put all trash/recycling curbside the night before. 
  • Trash must be placed in official Township trash bags which are securely tied or sealed before being placed at the curb. Please do not place the trash bags in other containers or totes. If you must place the bags in another container, please clearly mark that container as "trash".
  • Please do not place trash bags and recycling containers in the street for any reason.
  • All recycling must be placed in rigid wall containers. Recycling materials in plastic bags will not be collected. Recycling bins can be purchased at any hardware store or from the hauler. 
  • All cardboard must be flattened and tied or bundled or flattened and placed in a rigid wall container clearly labeled for recycling.

Recycle Right!

Use our Recycle Coach tool to find the best way to dispose of items. Looking up items using the What Goes Where prompt will tell you

  • if an item is recyclable.
  • where else (other than the trash) you can dispose of items that are NOT recyclable.
  • how to dispose of questionable items such as televisions, refrigerators, furniture, and much more.
