Community Hall Facade Repaired

The brick front of the Community Hall was recently repaired due to bricks crumbling and deteriorating on the old structure that once housed the township fire station. The old fire station garage doors were once located in the front of the building where the brick surface began to deteriorate. It was necessary to remove the supports above the old doors and install a footer to support the new wall. The necessary repairs resulted in a beautiful new front to a historic township building.

Compost Area Located East of the Cemetery

The compost area is located east of the cemetery and is open each day 7:00 a.m. until dusk. Material should be left in or picked up from designated areas as marked including: Raw Wood, Finished Mulch, Chipped Material, and Yard Waste. Please DO NOT leave trees or foreign material in the compost areas. The compost facility is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and inspected without notice. Trash and non-biodegradable material are not acceptable and could result in a citation. Please help to keep the compost area clean and operational.

Recycling Containers - Please no plastic or garbage bags

Catawba Island Township recycling containers are located at 4822 East Cemetery Road along the back of the parking lot. It is important to remember that plastic bags are not accepted. The collection facility is a continuous feed operation and plastic bags clog the machines. Some area retail stores have plastic bag recycling receptacles available.
