Waste Management is working to modernize their phone system to make your service more efficient. Click here for more information on the new phone system. You can also log in to MY WM or visit wm.com/support.

As of April 1, 2024, you can put one (1) bulk item at the curb weekly for pickup on your designated collection day (bulk items are considered oversized items that do not fit in your cart, such as appliances, furniture or specialty items). 

Pricing and charts for bulk collection on Pages 8-9 of your Customer Handbook are no longer applicable. Residents will not be charged for bulk collection service as long as you place only one (1) item at the curb each week.

Additional bulk collection can be scheduled at wm.com. Click on the Residential tab and select Bulk Trash Pickup. 

Glass is Back! You can once again place glass bottles and containers in your recycling cart.  

2024 Banner Community

Ohio Township has been named a 2024 Banner Community. The township is one of just a handful of communities who have received this honor for the 12th consecutive year since the programs inception in 2013. The Banner Community program, sponsored by Allegheny County and the Allegheny League of Municipalities, recognizes communities that show a commitment to professional development, prudent fiscal management, transparency, accountability , and proactive communications to engage community stakeholders. A total of 84 municipalities and five municipal authorities were recognized this year. 

Ohio Township Breaks Ground on the Upper Park Project

Ohio Township recently broke ground on the planned upper park project to expand our parks and recreation offerings at the community park. This exciting project will include new basketball, volleyball, tennis, and pickleball courts as well as cornhole and horseshoe pits. In addition to the new sports courts, there will also be a new pavilion, an observation deck, a rain garden, and new restrooms. 

The township received grant funding for this project from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). We are very grateful that we received this funding and believe that it will allow us to enhance the outdoor experience for our residents. 

Stay tuned for updates on the progress of this project.
