Representatives to host public meeting
Liberty Township officials and Republic/Allied Waste representatives will host a public meeting 7 p.m. Monday at the township administration building, 1315 Church Hill-Hubbard Road.
Republic Services/ Allied Waste will continue to provide residents curbside recycling refuse and recycling collection. Republic has made some changes in the collection of curbside recycling, however. Residents will receive a new 95 gallon recycling cart. On Oct. 27, residents will begin a new program with Republic Services with the collection of recycling every other week with the 95 gallon bins. Refuse collection will continue weekly.
For information, call Republic Services at 330-793-7676 or visit the township website at www.libertytwp.com.
