A dumpster is provided at 262 Pittsburgh Grade Road for Greene Township, Hookstown, and Georgetown residents ONLY.
Hours of operation are 9:00 am – 3:00 pm Saturday only through November 25, 2017. The dumpster closes during the winter months and will reopen after the time change in the spring.
We accept most items that your garbage hauler will not take. There are some exceptions, due to the restrictions placed on us by our recycling company. We will not take the following:
Household garbage, mattresses, propane tanks, batteries, yard waste, televisions, electronics (including computers), fuel tanks, recyclable tires and refrigerators unless they are tagged to have the freon removed by a certified technician.
PAPER recycling containers are located next to the old road garage (above the ball fields on Route 168) and beside the gravel pile at the Municipal Office at 262 Pittsburgh Grade Road.
This is a free service and does not cost the Township to have them emptied. Flattened cardboard is acceptable.
Please do NOT deposit any food containers such as cereal boxes, etc. as the food residue could attract rodents to the boxes.
