ALLEN TOWNSHIP TRASH AND RECYCLING COLLECTION
Please note that as of April 1, 2014, Allen Township will have a new trash hauler, ADVANCED DISPOSAL. Trash collection will continue every Thursday but recycling weeks will change. Recycling days for April will be April 3 and April 17, and will continue every other week from there. Any recycling pickup on April 10 was a courtesy for residents who were unaware there was a change in collection but that was a one time thing. Also, we will post recycling days on our Calendar of Events. If you have any questions regarding pick up after April 1, please call Advanced Disposal at 610 440-3708.
