How to Dispose of Yard Waste

April 10, 2017

Although Butler Township no longer offers a brush drop-off program, you do have options for disposing of all types of yard waste. Here’s what you need to know:

Rumpke

• Yard waste may be disposed of in any type of trash bag, although each household with “regular service” is limited to a total of six bags or containers per week. The six may be comprised of any combination of trash and yard waste, as long as the six-container limit per week is not exceeded.

• For “low-volume service” customers, yard waste must be co-mingled and fit inside the 35-gallon trash container.

• Limbs and brush must be bundled and tied into 4-foot x 2-foot bundles for regular service.

• Low volume-service customers must put limbs in their low volume trash container.

Todd Flohre has served as a part-time Butler Township firefighter/paramedic for the past five years, and gained additional experience working part-time for Washington Township. He is a certified technician for ice rescue and hazardous materials.

“With their highly specialized skill sets, Ryan and Todd are excellent additions to our staff,” said Fire Chief Dan Alig.
