Lawrence Township Eco-Waste Collection Program: Lawrence Township continues to offer an optional recycling program that allows residents the opportunity to compost their organic waste.

According to the EPA, food scraps and yard waste make up 20 to 30 percent of the waste stream. If you are interested, please complete the enrollment form: http://lawrencetwp.com/pw-organicwaste.html
