Wellington North drops yard waste pickup service

WELLINGTON NORTH – Township officials are reminding residents the municipality no longer offers a wood brush and garden material pick-up program.

Solid Waste Services include provisions for curbside garbage, blue box and green bin collection, the Riverstown Waste Facility and spring and fall curbside leaf and yard waste pick up.
