The current contract holder is Allied/Republic Services. For 2013 Shaler Township residents pay $18.46 per month for refuse/recycling and green waste services.
The bid prices are as follows:
|Allied/Republic Services||Waste Management|
Household Hazadous Waste and Electronic Waste: Starting in 2014 the Township has awarded an additional service to the successful bidder. This additional service will allow for the disposal of household hazaroudous waste (including paint products, pesticides, etc.) The current law stipulates that electronics (which are TV's, computers, monitors, and similar electronic waste) cannot be combined with regular trash collections. This option will allow residents to include electronics recycling with their regular collection.
The cost of this additional service will be $1.00 per month. The Township has elected to include this service in the contract to provide residents with an alternative for hard-to-dispose of materials for a minimal monthly cost.
With the addition of this new service, the combined price of $17.95 is $ .51 per month lower than the 2013 contract price. Senior Citizens 65 years of age and older will receive a 20% discount on this price. If you are a senior (age 65 or older) and your invoice does not reflect the senior rate, you may bring proper identification into the Township office to register for the reduced rate.
More information on the Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste will be coming by mail.
