Click here for updated details.


Effective at the beginning of 2017, all Township residents who use the Yard Waste Recycling Center must have a paper permit and/or sticker to enter the site. Vehicles will be turned away if they do not have the permit/sticker. If a permit or sticker has been lost or thrown away there is a fee of $10.00 to replace. Replacement fees can only be paid by cash or check at Township Municipal Offices at 3400 Brookside Road, Monday through Friday 8AM to 4:30PM.


Please Note: Anyone who comes to the Center on a weekend without a permit or sticker will be turned away until one is obtained. Our site is funded by the solid waste fees, which are collected from Township residents in individual homes so it is very important to keep non-residents and commercial enterprises from using our site.
