Do I Have To Participate in Collection?

Under Pennsylvania's Act 101 of 1989, the Allegheny County Solid Waste Plan and by Hampton Ordinance, residents of Hampton Township are required to utilize the residential collection service provided by the Township.  These laws also require that should the collector find that a customer is contaminating recyclables by mixing items that cannot be recycled together with items that can, Waste Management (WM) will not collect them.  Likewise, if the collector finds that wastes are improperly contained, overweight, or placed out of reach, WM can decline to collect them.  Other waste-related violations, including illegal dumping, will be addressed by either the State or the Township, depending on the circumstances.
