Single Waste Hauler
As part of the November 3, 2009 Election, the voters of Harrison Township overwhelmingly approved contracting with a single waste hauler for all curbside single family service beginning May 1, 2010. If you are in a condominium and the association uses a large dumpster, you are excluded from this arrangement.
This service is going to be provided to everyone and billed quarterly on your water bill. There is no opt-out provision, but if you find yourself unable to afford the entire amount, there is a hardship fund provided by the contractor to help individuals with limited resources.
We are excited to provide this new service to all our residents. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me at (586) 466-1445. To contact the current waste hauling provider GFL Environmental Services please call (866)772-8900.
With the expiration of waste hauling service contract occurring at May 1, 2015, the Board of Trustees elected to receive proposals from waste hauling firms. The Township collected proposals from three firms. At the March 23, 2015 Regular Board Meeting the Board of Trustees approved a single waste hauling contract with Rizzo Environmental Services for the period of May 2, 2015 through May 2, 2020.
In October of 2016, GFL Environmental Services completed the acquisition of Rizzo Environmental Services and became the Township's waste hauler. The rates, services and terms of service established with Rizzo Environmental Services will not change with GFL Environmental Services.
