We are aware that Waste Management sent out a pamphlet which listed recyclable items that are different from our contract. The Township had no knowledge that this pamphlet was being sent. We have contacted Waste Management about what was mailed.

The Township of O'Hara has a trash and recycling contract with Waste Management running from 2018-2021. This contract sets forth the items that are recyclable which include metal cans, plastics 1-7, glass, paper and cardboard. These items are subject to change only through mutual consent of both parties.

We are aware of the ever changing recyclables market and would notify our residents well in advance of any changes agreed to by both parties. For the time being, please continue to recycle the items you have been recycling.
