Fairgrove Township Residents Quick Update: We have spoken to GFL to clear up the recycling and trash being called together confusion. There was a misunderstanding about how recycling was being collected. Right now the Township has an emergency collection agreement with GFL. This agreement is meant to ensure that everything is collected and cleaned up. Unfortunately that means recycling and trash will go together if recycling is out. GFL's contract with the Township begins June 7th and regular recycling will begin at that time. Schedules and collection information will be mailed by GFL soon. We apologize for the confusion. There was a miscommunication in the rush of getting started.
Quick Message from GFL: DO NOT put batteries in your garbage. There was a small fire in a truck this morning caused by a larger 40 volt battery. Drivers were able to contain it quickly with no damage to the truck.
Please remember that trash day is now on Monday. Just to be safe have your trash out by 6:00 am. We ask that you discontinue use of the large rolling bins. GFL is not going to have the equipment to dump the large bins and the bins are too large to dump by hand. Garbage can be bagged and placed by the road. All trash, even if in can, needs to be bagged. Keep your trash bins to no more then 50 pounds each, so that drivers can easily handle.
