Residential Curbside Recycling Pickup
Scott Township is mandated by Act 101 to remind residents about the requirements of our recycling programs every six months. The following charts outline proper recycling procedures:
The Township provides blue recycling bins for residents’ recyclables. Place your blue recycling bin out with your trash to be picked up every other week by Allied Waste. Garbage cans and other containers for garbage and recycling may not be placed at curbside until 5:00 pm the previous day of scheduled collection. Containers must be removed from curbside by 9:00 pm of scheduled collection day.
Waste Management will continue to pick-up all household rubbish on Monday’s.
The items they will NOT pick-up are:
- Building Materials
- Auto body parts
- Medical waste
- More than one large item (ie., couch, sofa, etc. – call to schedule special pick-up)
Hazardous materials (such as paint, oil & gasoline) Old paint cans which contain no liquid will be picked up by the hauler if the lid is not on and the can is empty and dry. If the paint can contains paint you should fill it with kitty litter and let it sit until the material is solid.
Medical and Cooling Waste
To dispose of medical waste please check with your local pharmacy.
Old refrigerators and air conditioners will only be picked up by the hauler if the Freon is removed by a certified technician and a sticker verifying that the materials have been removed is placed on the appliance. You can contact a local heating/air-conditioning company to have this certification.
Trash will be picked up every Monday except for Memorial Day and Labor Day, it will be picked up on Tuesday of those weeks.
