Liberty Township is looking into the idea of creating a consortium for curbside trash and recycling service community-wide in collaboration with West Chester Township. This move could potentially provide added service and reduced cost per property in both communities. The idea is to utilize the free market to provide the most competitive rates to residents. Currently, residents of Liberty and West Chester townships pay on average more than $11 per month ($132/year) compared with other Butler County communities. If a consortium is created, a single provider would hold the contract for all curbside trash and recycling community-wide for a set number of years.
A joint work session was held on December 7, 2022 with the Boards of Trustees of both Liberty Township and West Chester Township. The session featured a presentation by Anne Fiehrer Flaig, Director, Butler County Recycling & Solid Waste District. It was open to the public and included a couple comments from residents. During the session, it was suggested that the two townships work on bid documents in 2023 with a goal of implementation in 2024.
