Trash Collection Information
The Township has received an increased number of phone calls about trash service recently and after investigating the issues we have found that the majority of calls could have been prevented by following these recommendations:
- Extra bag tags are required for any additional cans/bags over your service level. The tags are $1.00 each and come in sheets of 5. These tags can be purchased at the Township Municipal Building during normal business hours. Note: If you have the one or two bag service and are purchasing more than 5 extra bag tags per quarter, it would be to your advantage to call Vogel and have your service level increased to the 2-5 bag service.
- Bags should not weigh more than 30 lbs. Heavy bags are prone to break. If you are putting grass clippings out for trash pick up, please make sure the bags are not overweight.
- Please make sure that your trash is put in bags and that the bags are tied. Loose trash put out in cans tends to blow out of the trucks during pick-up with the new front loading trucks.
If you have any questions about your trash service or have any concerns, please call the Administration Office at 724-283-3430, X 212.
Free Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Butler Township has received a Hodge Fund Grant which was used to purchase smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. These detector are free to Butler Township residences that have children residing there or have children that frequently visit there. Residents can receive one smoke detector and one combination smoke and carbon monoxide detector or 2 smoke detectors per household, which are available at the Butler Township Municipal Building at the main reception area. Proof of residency is required.
