CONTAINER FACILITY POLICY
The Container Facility allows Montgomery Township residents to dispose of household items that are not recyclable, not hazardous waste and that cannot be collected by their trash hauler. A Montgomery Township Coupon is required of all Montgomery residents who wish to enter the facility.

CONTAINER FACILITY COUPON
Each household may purchase one (1) Coupon for a fee of Forty Dollars ($40.00) good for four (4) trips to the facility. The Coupon will be punched at the Container Facility. There is no expiration date and there is no limit on the number of additional Coupons households may purchase.

The application form and fee may be brought or mailed to the Montgomery Township Municipal Building. Coupons are not available for purchase at the Container Facility.

No one without a Coupon will be permitted into the Container Facility. Exception: There are two (2) items that can be brought to the Container Facility that do not require a Coupon. These two (2) items are used motor oil and brush. (See Container Facility Rules #5 brush and #8 motor oil). If a resident brings materials in addition to brush and/or motor oil, the trip will count and the Coupon will be punched. Proof of residency will be required.
CONTAINER FACILITY RULES
1. The Facility is available to Montgomery Township Residents only

2. Only privately owned cars, pickups and utility trailers no bigger than 4 ft. by 8 ft. are allowed. Commercial vehicles or commercial trucks are not allowed with the exception of a *One-Time Special Permit.
