Trash & Recycling Contract

North Newton Township has renewed the Trash & Recycling Collection Agreement with Southampton Township. The new contract was awarded to Apple Valley Waste (aka Park’s) and is effective July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2026.

Since 2011, North Newton Township (NNT) has participated in Southampton Township’s trash and recycling collection program. The program provides a lower quarterly bill over contracting for services individually and helps to limit the number of trash trucks on township roads and especially in neighborhoods.

2021 marks the beginning of the third 5-year collection contract and is the first time we’ve experienced a change in trash haulers and a slight increase in your quarterly rate. The price of handling recycling and the lack of a market for recycling are just two reasons for the price increase.

Apple Valley Waste (aka Park’s Garbage Service, Inc.) won the collection contract with a bid lower than the previous provider Waste Management (WM). This change provides NNT residents a savings of $120 per year per household over the next lowest bidder and a savings of $187 per year per household over contracting individually for collection services through Park’s.

As always, please call our office at (717) 776-7665 to schedule a bulk item collection or to report any issues with your service. We thank you for your patience through this time of transition.
