Spring yard waste collection typically takes place for one week in May. Only residential yard waste will be collected including branches, brush and garden waste. No grass clippings, paper, glass, plastic, cans or garbage. Yard waste must be placed in an orderly manner behing the curb ditch line of the public road. During the collection week, White Township Crews will travel along public roads in the Township collecting acceptable materials properly placed by the road. White Township will not enter private property to retrieve any materials. All woody material will be run through a chipper. Materials greater than 50lbs will not be collected.
Items to be collected are as follows:
- Tree Branches & Trimmings - less than five (5) inch diameter and eight (8) foot maximum lengths
- Shrubbery Trimmings-reasonably sized piles and No thorny shrubs.
- Garden Waste-Plant growth only, placed in cardboard boxes or biodegradable paper bags (No plastic bags) less than 50lbs
White Township reserves the right to not collect excessive or large amounts of waste due to lot clearing operations. If in doubt, call the White Township office at 724-463-8585.
