Both Township drop-off sites will continue to be open Monday to Friday from 8am-2pm, on alternating weeks, with additional Monday & Thursday evening from 2pm-6pm and Saturday hours from 8am-1pm. Franko will be open the weeks of June 29th and July 13th & 27th, but closed both July 3rd and 4th in observation of the Independence Day holiday. Devonshire will be open the weeks of July 6th and 20th. We will continue to assess the operation schedule beyond July and post appropriate notice.

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.
