TRASH COLLECTION - MONDAY & THURSDAY
Pickup begins at 6:00 AM and ends at 5:00 PM
Trash should be put out the night before or by 6:00 AM on the morning of trash pickup.
West Goshen Township has transitioned to an automated trash collection system. New trash collection trucks will service the Township. The new trucks will have only a driver to empty residential trash containers, providing a safer trash collection system. Trash collection will take only twelve seconds per household, making the new collection process more efficient.
Please use the Township-provided 96 gallon trash container. No other trash containers will be allowed. Place the container on the street with the wheels against the curb, and handle and wheels facing away from the street, at least three feet from any other trash containers and four feet from any other obstructions such as mailboxes, cars, or other vehicles.
Do not overfill the container. Lids on containers must be closed to prevent waste from spilling onto the street. This also helps eliminate odors and pest problems. Bagging all garbage also helps eliminate container odor. Do not place items on top, next to, or outside the container. If you do, the automated truck will NOT be able to pick up any of your trash. All items must be inside the container for collection.
The trash container shall remain with the property in the event of change of homeownership, and may not be removed for any reason.
If trash and recycling services are scheduled for the following holidays, pickup will occur on the next day. If a holiday falls on a Monday through Thursday, the second trash pickup that week will take place on Friday.
