Polk Township residents are responsible for recycling and their own trash removal. Private waste haulers or the township solid waste facilities can be used. Solid waste permits are $90.00 a year and allow the disposal of (3) thirty gallon garbage bags per week and unlimited recycling. Additional bags are $2.00 each. Permits are available to purchase at the township building. Please bring your car registration with you when purchasing a permit so we can validate the vehicle you will be using and your address. Please sort and separate your recyclables at home.
Large items can be disposed of any Wednesday or Saturday. You must stop in the township building to pay for the item before dropping it off. Please do not pay the attendants at the solid waste facility. We no longer do clean up days.
