Trash Pickup

If you live in unincorporated Washington Township and your trash hauler has not provided one of the services detailed on this page, call the township at 937-433-0152.

Residents Can Expect These Minimum Trash Collection Services:

All three trash haulers operating in unincorporated Washington Township have signed a Letter of Understanding which indicates their willingness to meet certain performance standards set forth by the township.

As a result, Washington Township lends "preferred provider" status to these haulers who operate within the unincorporated township:

Unincorporated Washington Township

Trash haulers each observe six holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. If a holiday falls on a week day, then trash pickup is delayed one day, with the final pickup day being Saturday. This applies to all homes originally scheduled for pickup either on the holiday itself or later in the week.

For instance, if a holiday falls on a Wednesday, then trash service will be undisturbed on Monday and Tuesday. However pickup will be delayed one day for homes that normally receive trash service on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If a holiday falls on a weekend then normal trash pickup schedules remain unchanged.

For additional questions about trash pickup, contact your trash hauler.

Lawn Debris

Branches and tree limbs can be tied in bundles no longer than 4 feet in length and 2 feet in diameter, with no limb being greater than 2 inches in diameter. Your waste hauler will provide pick-up for bundles with your trash, if bundled in this manner. Find more information about debris pickup:
