The West Whiteland Township's Board of Supervisors will be discussing the “Pay as You Throw" (PAYT) trash and recycling collection programs and whether to extend the haulers’ contracts an additional one or two years at their regular meeting on Wednesday, May 9 at 6:30 p.m.
The Township is in the last year of the trash and recycling collection contracts – two different contracts with two different haulers. Both contracts have options to extend the contract for one or two more years. The rate for the trash hauler remains the same for 2019 and 2020, while the recycling hauler’s rate increases for the first and second renewal years. Under the contract, haulers need to be notified by May 30, 2018 if the Township chooses to extend the contract.
The Public Services Commission has recommended to the Board of Supervisors to extend the trash collection contract with Charles Blosenski for two years, and to bid the recycling collection contract for a two-year term.
The Board invites you to share your thoughts on the PAYT program and participate in the discussion next week. For more information, please take a look at the meeting packet.
