Township of Spring 2022 Recycling & Trash Schedule

Beginning January 1, 2018, there will be two different trash and recycling haulers traversing the Township on a daily basis as a result of the recently awarded five-year trash and recycling contract. Eagle Disposal of PA, Inc. has been awarded the curbside trash collection portion of the contract and Waste Management will remain as our curbside recycling collection contractor.

YOUR TRASH AND RECYCLING COLLECTIONS DAYS WILL NOT CHANGE UNDER THE NEW CONTRACT.

Under the new contract, each residence will receive ONE (1) GREEN 96 Gallon Toter for Recycling  and ONE (1) BLUE 96 Gallon Toter for Trash. Please note that these toters are the property of the trash and recycling haulers and not the Township itself. They must remain at the property location if you would vacate the residence for any reason.

All items (except an allowed large bulk trash item) MUST be placed inside the toters in order for it to be collected by the haulers.

Please place the new toters out by the curb/grass area of the street the evening before your corresponding collection day as the new trash hauler might assume a different route than the old trash hauler and collection times may differ.


Latex, Water Based or Acrylic Paint Disposal

  1. Remove and discard the paint can lid.
  2. Make sure the paint can is 1/2 full or less.
    (if the can is more than 1/2 full, pour excess into another container, like a milk jug or coffee can.)
  3. Add clay-based kitty litter or absorbent material so that the can is about 3/4 full.
  4. Stir paint/kitty litter mixture.
  5. If liquid paint remains, add more kitty litter.
  6. Allow paint/kitty litter mixture to air dry until hard.
    (Should take approximately 1-2 days)
  7. Dispose of can in the garbage without the lid.
    NOTE: DO NOT PUT THE LID BACK ON THE PAINT CAN! Cans will not be picked up by your trash hauler if they can’t see the paint is dry.
