Changes to Garbage and Recycling
The Penn Township Commissioners have signed a new contract for garbage and recycling with Republic Services beginning on January 4th 2016. Standard service will be charged at $14.55 per month OR $43.65 per quarter.
The Senior Citizens Bag Program will continue, which requires seniors to sign up to purchase a sheet of 5 garbage tags for $12.50 for use on garbage bags instead of the standard refuse collection.
Important: Senior Citizens, age 65 or older, should contact Republic by December 20th to register to participate in the Senior Citizen Bag Program or to confirm that they are registered to participate.
Change In Pick-up days
The big change is that garbage and recycling pick-up will happen Monday through Friday instead of only one day a week i.e. Wednesdays.
You will be sent a flyer with your day of pickup. A flyer will also be sent that describes how Republic will handle garbage and recycling items.
Old Recycling Bins
Republic Services will be placing a large container at the Township building for people wishing to recycle their smaller recycling bins. However, the old bins are there's to keep and use as they wish.
