Trash, Recyclables, and Yard Waste: New Contract with Waste Management

After a competitive bidding process this summer, Waste Management was selected by the Board of Trustees to continue as the exclusive hauler of residential trash, recyclables, and yard waste in Jefferson Township.

The collection schedule remains the same, with every week collection of trash, and alternating every other week collection of recyclables and yard waste. Existing accounts will carry over, but new residents must contact Waste Management to establish an account.
