2020 Census

The 2020 Census marks the first time that you can choose to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail. If you need help or do not have a computer, you may come to the township building and we will offer assistance. Participating in the census is important and the results will ultimately help determine how federal funding flows into communities every year for the next decade. For more information on the 2020 Census and why it is important, go to

Glass Recycling Kickoff Event

Starting June 27th, 2020, Butler Township began a glass recycling initiative where glass bottles and jars could be dropped off at in the hopper located at the rear of the municipal building by the garage. The hopper is available at all times, Monday through Sunday.

The Saturday kickoff was well attended, thanks in large part to Butler Eagle, Butler Radio Group, and representative Mustello’s office for their advertising assistance and attendance. We look forward to the continued usage of the program.

As a cautionary, we can accept glass bottles and jars only. Labels are permitted to still be affixed, however, any metal lid or cap must be removed before placing it in the hopper removed from any plastic bag, box, etc.
