History

Since roughly 1970, Miami Township has provided trash service through two property tax levies. These levies covered the cost for waste and recycling services for Miami Township residents. In 2012, residents voted down one of the two levies which required the township to change the way it provides trash service.

As of June 1, 2013, the waste disposal program in Miami Township moved to a residential fee system. Contracts are negotiated by the township every three years (with two option years available) to secure a rate for all residents of the community. Residents are billed by the waste hauler quarterly if they choose to have the service. Residents may opt out of the program by calling the waste hauler directly. Miami Township receives no compensation, franchise fees or benefits from this contract.

Taxes

In previous years, there were two tax levies shown on the yearly tax duplicate. Since 2014, no trash levy from Miami Township has been shown on residents property taxes, but a $21.50 landfill fee from Montgomery County will be shown.

2014 Trash Survey

The Miami Township Board of Trustees requested feedback on the current trash service via an online survey that was available from June 1 through June 22 of 2014. The results were presented to the Board of Trustees at the June 24, 2014 BOT Meeting. A copy of the PowerPoint from that meeting will be available for download below after the meeting.
