Is garbage/recycling pick-up through Waste Management mandatory?

The Commonwealth and County have regulations that mandate the pick-up of residential garbage and recycling. Furthermore, as part of these mandates, it does not allow the transportation of garbage/refuse in private vehicles. As such, the Township has an ordinance mandating that all residential households participate in the Township-sponsored program for collection of garbage and recycling. This ordinance was adopted by Township Council a number of years ago in order to bring the Township in compliance with County and State regulations. Should you not participate in the Township-sponsored Waste Management program for the collection of garbage and recycling, you are still responsible for the payment of a garbage bill. Furthermore, Waste Management is well within its legal rights to sue for the collection of all delinquent payments and possibly lien your property.
