PLAINS TWP. — The township Board of Commissioners passed several measures pertaining to municipal cleanup during Thursday’s regular meeting.
On a 3-2 vote, the board voted to advertise for tri-axle truck services to help during a May cleanup.
Board Chairman Ron Filippini and Commissioner Brigid O’Conner voted against the motion, saying the work can be handled with the already available equipment and work force.
In other business, Commissioner Gerald Yozwiak said that as of April 6 the municipal recycling center on Cemetery Street will be open for yard waste drop-offs. Regular collection of yard waste likely will follow at some point during May.
The center already accepts electronic and other household recyclable items.
Township residents who do not wish to haul recyclable electronic materials to Hanover Township for the countywide drop-off on June 15 can take them to the Plains Recycling Center weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Yozwiak said.
Plains officials also announced the sale of an unused leaf vacuum and pickup truck for $1,200 and the purchase of protective equipment for the township police department’s emergency response unit for $11,714.
