On Saturday, September 18th Delhi Township will host a yard waste drop-off for residents from 8 a.m. to noon. The yard waste collection, which will include new safety protocols, will take place at the Delhi Township Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW), located near the recycling center on Grovenburg Road.
With these protocols in place, we will balance the need for residents to drop off their yard waste and social distancing guidelines so we can continue providing this important service to our residents.
New safety protocols and procedures include:
- Yard waste must be fully enclosed in a paper yard waste bag. Plastic bags or emptying containers into the waste collection area is not permitted.
- Brush and tree trimmings must be no longer than 4’ and no more than 4” in diameter. No dirt or sod is accepted. No stumps are accepted.
- We cannot accommodate trailers larger than 5’ x 8’, tandem trailers or cube/box trucks
- All unloading must be done by the resident. There is no staff or volunteers available to help.
- Staff will remain a minimum of 6 feet from people or open vehicle windows.
- Staff will direct cars at the intersection of Grovenburg Road and the recycle/lagoon facility driveway.
- Residents with brush will be directed to the lagoon facility, while those with yard waste in bags will be directed into the plant. Residents will need to take yard waste to the designated location.
