2023 Schedule for Residential Cleanup
The 2023 Residential Cleanup Program will be returning this year. All acceptable materials must be placed at the curb before 7 a.m. on the FIRST cleanup day scheduled for a section. We cannot guarantee which of the two scheduled days they will be in your particular portion of your scheduled section.
IN CASE YOU SEE THE BULK PICKUP TRUCKS IN YOUR SECTION OF TOWN EARLIER THAN THE FIRST SCHEDULED DAY, PLEASE DON'T WORRY. THEY WILL BE IN THE SCHEDULED SECTIONS ON THE SCHEDULED DAYS; ANY DAYS THEY SHOW UP ARE IN ADDITION TO. If time allows, they try to get an early start on sections.
Please adhere to the following schedule; we ask that, if possible, your materials are NOT left at the curbside until the appropriate date.
Section 1- Monday, May 1 & Tuesday, May 2
Section 5- Thursday, May 4 & Friday, May 5
Section 4- Monday, May 8 & Tuesday, May 9
Section 3- Thursday, May 11 & Friday, May 12
Section 2 - Monday, May 15 & Tuesday, May 16
You can look up your section and can view a breakdown of sections by road list Township Sections by Street Name page.
The contractor will cover each street only once.
Therefore, it is very important that materials for pick up are at the curb for collection on the first day for each section. Small, loose items will be picked up only if suitably placed in a wood, metal, or other substantial container and the weight of the container and contents do not exceed 50 pounds.
