Recycling in Williams Township
Our Recycling Center on Morgan Hill Road will no longer be accessible for 24 hour drop off.
All collection containers will now be moved behind fencing and locked. So we can better monitor and properly regulate collection, we will be open on the Second Saturday each month. The center will operate from 9:00 am until Noon and will be overseen by a member of our Public Works Department and our local Boy Scouts to ensure the newly required separation process is followed. This collection will also coincide with our “brush” collection as well. This change will become effective on January 1, 2019.
