We received some great news today from Republic Services, beginning the week of April 27 bulk and yard waste services will resume in our community. Please be sure to call Republic Services in advance if you do have bulk items.
We were notified today that our 2020 Spring Clean-Up Program has been reinstated by Republic Services. This is certainly some wonderful news for our community. The program will be held as originally planned which is the week of May 11 during your regular pickup day.
We would like to remind our residents that the 2020 Scrap Tire Curbside Pickup Collection Program will begin on Monday, May 11, 2020 and continue through Friday, May 15, 2020.

The Trustees would like to announce that the 2020 Residential Tree Limb Chipping Program will begin on Friday May 8, 2020 and will continue each Friday through October 16, 2020. For tree limb pick-up, you must call the Township by Thursday of each week to be placed on the list for a Friday pick-up. Please keep the following rules and procedures in mind:
· This program is intended for residential tree limbs up to 3 inches in diameter.
· The tree limbs must be placed at the curbside with all the cut ends aligned with each other toward the street.
· No shrubs, stumps, roots, lumber, or rail road ties will be accepted. All tree limbs must be free from vines.
· We are not a tree removal service; if you are having a tree professionally removed let them do the entire job, you must have them take the tree limbs as well.
The board of Trustees has decided to postpone the annual Flag Day Festival that was to be held on June 11, 12, and 13. Their decision was based on the ban of large public gatherings and is made in best interest of the public’s health, safety, and welfare.
It is their hope to have an event this fall, but of course that will depend on the guidance from our Governor at that time.
Please be advised that the above captioned hearing that was to be held on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 6:00 PM has been canceled. The proposed zoning amendments will be considered sometime later this year.
