Forks Scheduling Spring Cleanup

Forks Township will hold a cleanup this spring as part of its required recycling mandates.

You'll probably get a notice in the mail sometime soon.

Forks Township will be holding a waste cleanup this spring.

Finance Director Jim Farley recently informed the Board of Supervisors that the township must hold a spring waste cleanup as part of its DEP-required recycling mandates. DEP is the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Farley said the cleanup will be held during spring (a date is forthcoming) and will take place for one week.

He said that trucks will sweep through the township, collecting yard debris. (A similar collection was held two years ago.)

Farley said the cost to collect the debris is $900 a day for a truck, with disposal costs set at $375. He said he was not sure whether a second truck would be needed due to the amount of debris from Hurricane Sandy.

"It shouldn't be too bad," Farley said. "It shouldn't be a problem."

Farley said the collection will work similar to normal garbage collection with the second truck following the garbage routes.

With the township trying to boost its recycling efforts, Forks will recoup $40 a ton for waste it takes to the landfill, Farley said.
