Drop-Off Locations Reopening on May 4, 2020

Beginning May 4, 2020, both the Franko Drop-Off and the Devonshire Drop-off will be reopening, under slightly different guidelines from the norm:

The two drop-offs will be open Monday to Friday from 8am-2pm, on alternating weeks, for the entire month of May. Franko will be open the weeks of May 4th and 18th. Devonshire will be open the weeks of May 11th and 26th. This is a temporary change intended for the month of May only. We will revisit the operation schedule in mid to late May, but it is subject to change at any time, depending on circumstances.

We’ll have one Public Works’ employee stationed at the entrance gate, managing all site visitors. Residents will have to show proof of Township residency (their most recent utility bill would be optimal) and addresses will be logged. Only 3 cars will be allowed on-site at any given time; only when one car leaves another will be allowed in.

As usual, the sites are open for residential use only; no landscapers or non-residential use will be allowed. All materials will be checked to ensure that they’re clean and not contaminated with other waste. Contaminated materials will not be allowed to be disposed of at the site.

In order to maintain appropriate social distancing, there will be no physical interaction between Township staff and the public. Residents must be able to unload materials and empty containers themselves. Residents must take all bags and containers utilized for the transportation of materials with them when they leave the drop-off site.

Masks will be required to be worn to enter the site.
