Harrison Township Residents

At the July 2, 2018 meeting, the Harrison Township Trustees opened bids for our township-wide trash hauler contract. Our board received multiple bids from four interested contractors. After careful consideration, the board moved to award the bid to Waste Management for another five-year term. As with so many products and services, the fees will have a slight increase over the current contract. However, we believe that the positive attributes, and cost savings to the residents, are beneficial and significant. Please see the accompanying rate sheet for the new contract rates. Finally, these rates are subject to a fuel surcharge, in the event you see some fluctuation in your bills.

If there are any questions regarding this contract, or concerns with the service, please reach out to the trustees, or Waste Management directly at (866) 797-9018.

Thank you,
Your Harrison Township Trustees
