Trash Removal & Recycling

Overview



   
Findlay Township contracts for local trash removal and recycling services. Beginning on April 1, 2014, the current trash hauler for township residents is Waste Management. New residents must contact Waste Management Waste to arrange for trash removal to begin at their home. Beginning on April 3, 2014, trash removal is scheduled every Thursday.

This schedule is sometimes delayed due to holidays or inclement weather. You can find trash removal days online or print out the most current calendar (2017 WM calendar here). Should there be a delay in trash pick-up service due to inclement weather, residents will be notified with a telephone message from our SwiftReach service, an email or text from our Notify Me service, or they may contact the township office at 724-695-0500 for further information. 

Collection


Waste Management also provides pickup of recyclables. Findlay Township requires residents to recycle paper, newspaper, glass, plastic and aluminum. Recycling carts are available at the township office. New residents will be provided with one recycling cart. Additional and replacement carts are available at the township office during regular business hours. The cost for the cart is $20. The smaller recycling bins and lids are no longer available to new residents, however the township does have a small supply available for purchase as replacements. The cost for the bin and lid is $10. 
 
Findlay Township also provides periodic recycling for tires (once per year). Watch this space for information regarding upcoming recycling projects that will include yard waste/leaf removal and computer/electronics.
 

Waste Management Gets Contract for Trash / Recycling


Starting April 1, 2014, our contract for trash / recycling has been awarded to Waste Management of Pennsylvania, Inc. They were the successful low bidder for our contract that covers April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2018. Most importantly, our collection day will be changing at that time to Thursday rather than a Friday. From an economic standpoint, our rates will be going down and are scheduled as follows: (Our existing rate for curbside collection is $13.88 per month):

New Rates


  • April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015 - $13.34 per month
  • April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016 - $13.61 per month
  • April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017 - $13.88 per month
  • April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018 - $14.16 per month
Under the new service, registered senior citizens (age 67+) will continue to receive their trash and recycling services for free. In addition, the township continues to encourage single stream recycling. Simply put, all items that can be recycled can be placed into the recycling container: i.e. glass, bimetals, plastics, newspapers, cardboard, etc.
