Why was only part of my garbage picked up?

It is possible you exceeded the bag limit, which is currently two bags/containers. It could be that your garbage is in a container that exceeds the sizes laid out in the township’s refuse collection policy. It is also possible you put out something that the garbage truck will simply not pick up. Items including furniture and appliances, tires, liquids, demolition and construction material, and hazardous waste such as batteries and propane tanks will not be collected. These items may be brought to the Boyne Road Landfill Site. Please note that hazardous waste is only accepted during specific hazardous waste days.
