Allen Township SPRING WHITE/METAL GOODS COLLECTION – Scheduled for Thursday, March 9th!
The SPRING COLLECTION of WHITE/METAL GOODS for Allen Township residents will take place on Thursday, March 9th, with your scheduled garbage collection. Residents may place any white/metal goods (unlimited amount) at the curb for pick up on Thursday, March 9th.
White/metal goods are defined as appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators and freezers (with doors and Freon removed), washers, dryers, hot water heaters, dehumidifiers, bicycles, lawnmowers (with oil and gas removed), BBQ grills (with gas and/or charcoal removed), and various other household metal items. White/Metal Goods Collections occur twice a year (Spring & Fall collections). Collection dates are also posted on our trash & recycling page
Collection Dates for 2023:
- Spring Collection - Thursday, March 9th
- Fall Collection – Thursday, November 9th
Allen Township residents who are serviced by the municipal hauler (JP Mascaro & Sons) are reminded that each residence may place one (1) bulk item out per week with their scheduled weekly garbage collection. Bulk items include those items too large to fit into normal garbage cans and are further defined as items having the approximate size and weight of a standard size sofa that can be carried by two (2) men. Examples include furniture, porcelain sinks/toilets, mattresses, and rolled up and tied rugs no larger than 3’x6’. Due to a growing problem with bed bugs, all mattresses and box springs must be wrapped with plastic before placement at the curb for collection. Unacceptable materials that will not be collected include construction materials, hazardous waste, electronics, tires, yard waste, grass clippings, or additional household trash.
*Electronics are NOT included in the White/Metal Goods collection or Bulk Item collection. The electronics recycling event (for Allen Township residents only) is scheduled for Saturday, August 12, 2023 from 9AM to 12PM (Noon) at the Allen Township Fire Company Building.
