Residential Home

PARTICIPATION:  In accordance with municipal ordinances for refuse and recycling collection in Benner, College, Ferguson, Harris, and Patton Townships, all single family residences with curbside service are required to participate individually in the Regional Refuse and Recycling Program, and are required to pay the contracted hauler for that service.

The contract was awarded to Advanced Disposal Services for 2020-2024.  However, Advanced was acquired by Waste Management late in 2020.  In July of 2021, Waste Management transitioned all billing from Advanced to their internal billing system. Your invoice will come from Waste Management starting with the July 2021 bill.
