Township Recycling Bins

Recycling bins are currently out of stock for purchase. When the new supply is provided by the manufacturer, we will let you know. Thank you for your patience.

You may purchase a recycle container at a retail store, but please be sure it is clearly marked RECYCLING so it is not picked up by the trash hauler and thrown in with the trash.
