Brush Pick Up to End Early November

The first week of November will be the final brush pickup for the year. Brush pick up will resume in the spring. Maintenance personnel pick up brush every other week throughout the year except late fall and winter. Please pile brush roadside for collection. There is no need to call to schedule brush pick up as maintenance personnel make regular collection rounds and do not make special trips for pick up.

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. For questions concerning the recycling program please contact the OSS Solid Waste District at 419-334-7222.
