The Columbia Township Board has contracted with Emterra Waste Management to provide trash service to residents due to the closing of Diva Disposal. In order to service residents since we did not have trash service this week, Emterra will be picking up your trash tomorrow, October 5th. Our normal trash service date will continue on Tuesdays as normal next week. Additional information regarding their service will be provided in a mailing to township residents soon. Thank you again for your patience as we have tried to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
