Illegal Dumping

  • It is a violation of Township Ordinances to dispose of refuse or garbage on any property, body of water, or roadway.
  • The Township's contractor must collect residential refuse.
  • A licensed collector must collect the refuse for commercial, municipal, institutional, and multi-family properties (6 or more units and mobile home parks).
