Weekly Recycling Continues in 2013

The Aston Township Board of Commissioners is proud to announce that the Township will continue with weekly recycling pickup for 2013. The choice was made after the numbers for Single Stream Recycling have increased drastically month over month and year over year. For the past three months the Public Works Department has been collecting at a feverish pace including the total for December, 111.19 tons “A new township record.” We would like to thank every resident for working hard to ensure this program is a success. “With weekly pickup we expect our totals to get into the 150 to 170 ton range by the end of 2013,” said Road Foreman Russ Palmore.
