The Jenkins Township Board of Supervisors has cancelled the public work session for Wednesday, Sept. 12 scheduled due to prior commitments of the board of supervisors.


The regular meeting of the board will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 12.


Yard waste collection

Township has joined the Greater Pittston Joint Municipal Compost Facility and residents must follow several changes in the collection of yard waste.


The Jenkins Township Public Works Department will collect only yard waste and tree branches suitable for grinding and mulching.


No rocks, dirt, garbage, rubbish, plastic, glass, boards, pipes or other materials may be co-mingled with yard waste and/or branches.


No tree trunks will be accepted for pickup.


If any prohibited materials as listed above are in the weekly yard waste collection, the Jenkins Township Public Works Department will reject all of the yard waste and/or tree branches placed for collection.


It is very important that the unacceptable items listed above be eliminated to insure that compost facility machinery does not become damaged and result in the closing of the compost facility for a period of time.


Single stream recycling

Since Jenkins Township changed to single stream recycling in 2012, the Jenkins Township Board of Supervisors is asking residents to separate their newspapers magazines and cardboard for recycling collection. Newspapers and magazines can be bundled in manageable bundles on the ground next to recycling containers. The cardboard should be broken down, tied and placed on the ground next to recycling containers. Recycled junk mail can be placed in between newspapers or magazines or put in a grocery bag so the papers do not blow around the neighborhood.
