Single Waste Hauler
As part of the November 3, 2009 Election, the voters of Harrison Township overwhelmingly approved contracting with a single waste hauler for all curbside single family service beginning May 1, 2010. If you are in a condominium and the association uses a large dumpster, you are excluded from this arrangement.
Prior to the election, the Board of Trustees received proposals from five different companies and chose Tringali Sanitation with the low bid $154.20 in the first year. This price includes household waste, yard waste, recycling, bulky items and white
goods such as a refrigerator or stove. The contract is set with 4% increases each year for three years, with an additional two years at the Township’s discretion.
As part of the service, Tringali will provide everyone with a plastic bin for recycling. The cost does not include new containers for household or yard waste because we know many people already own their own container, but if you would like one you can purchase one at the low negotiated price of $60.00. You can also use containers that you purchase at any local store or trash bags. Best of all there are no stickers required regardless of how much you put out.
This service is going to be provided to everyone and billed quarterly on your water bill. There is no opt-out provision, but if you find yourself unable to afford the entire amount, there is a hardship fund provided by the contractor to help individuals with limited resources.
We are excited to provide this new service to all our residents. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me at (586) 466-1445. Part of the service includes a toll free number, 1-877-WASTE19 (1-877-927-8319), which is a dedicated line for Harrison Township residents. Please keep this number for future reference.
