On December 18, 2012 the Township Committee reviewed several solid waste and recycling options for 2013. After careful review, the Committee agreed to the following:
*Recycling will be made easier by changing to “single-stream” recycling, allowing for bottles, cans, plastic containers and paper to be mixed together into a single waste stream.
*Recycling will be increased from every other week to once a week, probably on Wednesday. The actual day will be confirmed shortly.
*Collection of garbage and recyclables in public parks and public containers in retail areas will now be collected by Regional Industries, a private hauler, thereby freeing up DPW workers to focus on their core operations.
*Garbage collection will be once per week. If your garbage was picked up Monday and Thursday, your garbage collection will be Thursday. If your garbage collection was Tuesday and Friday, your garbage collection day will be Friday. Actual days to be confirmed shortly.
* Bulk garbage pick-up will remain at 4 times per year. March, June, September and December. Actual days to be confirmed shortly.
* The Springfield Environmental Commission will be helping the Township with education and outreach of the services and dates listed above.
