The recycling collection containers are located outside of the fence as you enter the garbage collection area. Because of contamination of the bins, we must now monitor what is being placed in these containers. As such, they are now only available to Fox Township residents during regular garbage collection hours (as listed on this page). Each bin is labeled for plastic, paper, or cardboard. Aluminum and other metals are collected in the large orange container inside the fenced area. Please place your recyclables in the appropriate container. DO NOT leave your items lay on the ground next to the containers! These containers are not meant for household garbage.
NEWSPAPER RECYCLING PROGRAM
Place your old NEWSPAPERS in the shed located by the recycling trailers. Local farmers will shred these newspapers for animal bedding. Newspapers can be in cardboard boxes or paper bags but PLEASE, NO plastic bags. Newspapers can be dropped off during garbage collection hours only. DO NOT Place magazines, plastics or other items in this shed.
A limited collection compost site is available during garbage collection hours. ONLY grass clippings, leaves and garden debris is accepted. NO BAG, BOXES or other items can be disposed of in the compost area!
