Trash Removal




Butman Township Notification

- Intended for residents located in Butman Township and Sugar Springs 

Butman Township, in conjunction with Republic Services, is pleased to announce that Republic Services will be the Townships new solid waste, recycling and yard waste collection provider.   Republic will deliver two new carts for each new residence for the containment of both their solid waste and recycling. Recycle will be collected on an every other week basis. Please refer to the new 2019 calendars with this flyer for your recycling schedule.  Please note your service day will not be changing at this time.  All other services will remain the same. 

How will this system work . . . ?  

Republic Services will provide each household with two (2) 95-gallon curb carts that have the capacity of (3) 32-gallon trash cans each.  On your collection day, simply place your Carts at the curb with the handle facing your house. Make sure you have a minimum distance of four feet from other objects such as mailboxes, parked cars, and even your bulky item.  Republic Services new automated collection truck will then pick up the Cart, empty it, and return them to its original location.  It’s that simple!

Solid Waste Collection . . . Calendar

The Curb Cart with the dark blue lid should be placed at the curb NO LATER than 6:00 AM on your collection day (Monday if in Sugar Springs).  If you have more waste than what your cart can handle, please bag and place NEXT TO the cart, NOT ON TOP of the cart. The driver can easily empty the cart, then refill it with the other bag and empty again.  Generate more than the contents of one cart? Need another cart?  Please contact the Republic for details.

Recycling Collection… Calendar

Recycle Carts with the light blue lids should be placed at the curb NO LATER than 6:00 AM on your collection day of Wednesday for the entire township. Recycling will be serviced on an every other week basis. Please refer to the NEW Recycle Material Guidelines included with this information packet to find out what can now be recycled. Generate more than the contents of one cart? Need another cart?  Please contact the Republic for details.

Yard Waste… Calendar

Yard waste will be collected on a weekly basis starting in April and going through November on Tuesday for the entire township. All yard waste must be placed in biodegradable Kraft paper bags or placed in 30-gallon cans, clearly marked as yard waste. Positively no plastic bags will be accepted. Branches and twigs smaller than 2” in diameter must be placed in bundles no larger than 2’ by 4’ long or 50 pounds per bag or bundle. Positively no tree trunks, stumps, construction or demolition debris will be accepted.

Cart Care . . .

With the right care your new Carts will last for many years without needing maintenance.  Please use trash bags to contain your waste inside the Cart. This will reduce the need for periodic cleanings. Your Cart has smooth surfaces that allow it to be easily cleaned with a regular garden hose and dishwashing soap.  Do not place hot ashes, construction debris, and/or hazardous waste in the Cart.  Please do not paint or write on the Cart.  Each Cart is labeled with a serial number. Residents should take note of the serial number of their specific Cart.  If it is lost or stolen, please provide this number to the police then provide a copy of the police report to Republic and they will provide you a replacement at no additional charge.

Moving . . .

If you move, do not take the cart with you.  The cart has been assigned to the property address along with the serial number and should be available for the next occupant/owner of the household.

Prohibited Items . . .

Items prohibited are: dirt, sod or rock, hazardous waste of any kind, liquids of any kind including paint, flammable materials such as oil, or gas, concrete, hot ashes; yard waste of any kind, large amounts of remodeling or demolition materials, whole tires or any other material to be determined as prohibited by State Statute.

Holidays . . .

When a holiday falls on or before your collection day, there will be no collections on that day, and the rest of that week’s refuse and recycling collection will be one day later than usual.

Bulky Item Collection . . .  

Bulky items may be placed curbside each week for collection.  Bulky Items shall be bundled in parcels not to exceed two (2) foot by four (4) feet in length and/or fifty (50) pounds in weight. 

Inclement Weather . . .

In the event that Republic is unable to provide service due to inclement weather, collection will take place the next day following the scheduled collection day, or as soon as weather conditions allow. The Township will immediately be notified should service be interrupted due to bad weather conditions.  Please feel free to contact Republic if you have any questions regarding service during inclement weather.
