- About Us
Recyclable materials are collected on the same day as refuse. Springfield Township collects all recyclables in a true commingled, or "single-stream" fashion. When recyclables are collected in a single-stream manner, cans, bottles, paper and cardboard are collected together and separated later at an automated recycling facility, as opposed to source separation by residents or township employees. Too good to be true? Check out the video below:

In 2019, Springfield Township and your neighbors helped retrievr recycle 50 tons of electronics, clothing, and accessories.
For 2020, get a jumpstart on your resolution to recycle more with retrievr’s trade-in program: for a limited time, retrievr is offering up to $97 for used smartphones and up to $40 for select apparel brands. Items must be in great condition or better, showing minimal signs of wear.
Retrievr will continue to collect and recycle any electronics and clothing on their accepted items list (retrievr.com/how-it-works) that do not meet the trade-in program standards.
Text “PICKUP” to 757-70-FETCH (757-703-3824) or visit retrievr.com to get started.
There is no charge for the collection of textiles and most electronics. There is a charge of $35 to collect a standard "tube" television or computer monitor, and $100 for rear projection or wood cabinet televisions.
