Mission Statement
The primary mission of the Plymouth Township Solid Waste Department is to offer a cost effective and efficient method of collecting and disposing of the residential waste of the township, while attempting to reduce the amount of waste taken to a landfill. The reduction shall be accomplished by striving to reduce the amount of wastes generated by our residents, by increasing the volumes of recyclable materials used and by insuring that yard waste materials remain separate from our residential waste stream.
