Residents should be aware that by law in Franklin County all residential properties are REQUIRED to have trash service. Within Madison Township, all residents must use the trash hauler contracted by their municipality. Owners of the property are responsible for payment of the service, should their tenant’s default on service. Please update your lease agreements accordingly or make arrangements to include the cost in your rental payment. Commercial businesses may select their hauler, but are expected to keep all trash picked up in front and around their business and dumpsters may not be overflowing.
