Fairview Township has signed a new 5-year contract with Waste Management

-A A +A

 

Effective January 1, 2015, Fairview Township has a new 5-year contract with Waste Management at a fixed rate of $26.34 per month for unlimited service.  This amount includes recycling, the At-Your-Door Hazardous Home Waste and Electronic Waste program and 5 weeks of unlimited curbside leaf pickup.  If you rent your green waste bin, there will be an additional $3.00 per month fee.

If you would like to opt-out of the traditional quarterly billing system with unlimited trash collection, you may choose the Per Bag Program.  With this pay-as-you-throw program, residents may purchase the green/yellow bags for $20.00 for 5 bags at the Township building, and put them out for collection by Waste Management on your regular trash pick-up day or as often as you wish.  Unlimited recycling and curbside leaf pick-up is also included. The Household Hazardous Waste program will cost an additional $13.32 per year for residents on the Per Bag program.

  • Monday pickup - residents living south of Route 20

  • Wednesday pickup - residents living north of Route 20

Recycling is mandatory for all residents and commercial businesses. Burning of garbage, recyclable items and/or leaf waste as defined by Act 101 and Fairview Township Ordinance #2007-3 is prohibited.

For residents, curbside service is available through Waste Management by calling 800-458-0476.

Recyclable items are picked up on the same day as trash. During the scheduled two weeks of curbside leaf waste pickup, a separate truck is used to pick up leaf waste. Both sizes of blue recycling bins are available at the Township Office, 7471 McCray Road.
