Who collects our trash?

Township of Hamilton will provide each residence with one (1) cart only and the cart remains the property of the township.

How should I place the cart at the street?
All materials must fit in the cart so that the lid is closed. Only materials within the cart will be collected.
Can I put my house number on my trash cart?
It is suggested that you use stickers similar to those you might use on your mailbox if you want to put your house number on the cart. The carts are the property of the township and care should be taken not to damage them. Please refrain from using markers or spray paint to mark the cans as this permanently defaces the can and you will be charged the cost of a new cart based on marketing pricing plus $25 service fee.

What happens if my cart breaks?
