Ross Township is pleased to report that our community-wide recycling program has diverted 46% of its solid waste from landfills. Ross Township has an active litter prevention/clean-up program. Please click here to participate in the 2017 program. An assessment was completed by the Sustainability Coordinator to review the Township's employees recycling program. It was determined that the Township was not recycling its paper or battery waste. The Sustainability Coordinator ordered green paper recycling receptacles for every department and met with all department heads and employees to review proper disposal of paper products. In addition, the Sustainability Coordinator entered into a cooperative agreement with Batteries Plus, a local business, to recycle the Township's battery waste products. Lastly, these recycling practices have been expanded for public drop off. The Township also encourages its employees to recycle paper, batteries, cell phones, and ink cartridges. There are public drop-off containers for the listed materials located at the front of Ross Municipal Building.
