Waste Connections – New solid waste trash / recycling services

Starting January 1, 2018, residents in the municipalities of Cumberland and Straban Townships and Abbottstown Borough will receive their solid waste trash/recycling services from Waste Connections (IESI) of Chambersburg, PA.  In addition to residents seeing a savings over their previous invoices, the new hauler will be providing free curbside recycling totes, large item pick-up and optional 96-gallon garbage totes ($3/each).  The new contracts will also provide four E-Cycling events throughout the year.  These events will rotate locations between the three participating municipalities.  The first is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 24, 2018, in Straban Township from 8am to 2pm.  Waste Connections will be mailing residents full information about their services, costs, and how to sign up.  Waste Connections can be reached at their Customer Service line, 717-709-1700 (listen for the special extension number for Adams County customers), or by visiting their web-site at www.wasteconnectionspa.com should you have any questions or concerns.
