YARD WASTE SITE
This site is for the personal use of township residents to dispose of yard waste from their Laketon Township property ONLY.
NO contractors/businesses/paid services are permitted to use the site.
A resident wishing to use the site must purchase a Yard Waste Card each year, cards can be purchased in the Township Hall when open for regular business or from the attendant at the yard waste site. Methods of payment at the yard waste site are cash and check only - and the site will have limited funds to make change so the exact change of $20.00 is much appreciated.
No one will be permitted to use the site until a yard waste card is purchased. The site is located behind the township hall on Green Creek Rd.
An attendant is on site to verify residency and will ask to see your driver's license and yard waste card. Thank you for your cooperation in providing proof of your Laketon Township Residency each and every time you visit/use the site.
