Jerry Andree, Township Manager

No level of government has more impact on daily life than local government. That’s why my colleagues and I at Cranberry Township are passionate about pushing the limits of excellence to provide the best possible services to our residents and customers. However, being well-served is not a passive achievement; it is a collective undertaking. Through this blog, we offer our personal reflections on that assignment. And we hope it will help engage you in joining us on that same collaborative mission.

[ARCHIVED] What will change when Waste Management arrives in Cranberry?

Nothing. For the last five years, Vogel Disposal has done a great job of working with Cranberry in setting up the Collection Connection residential solid waste program. Last month, the Board of Supervisors took bids on a contract for the next five years, and Waste Management came in with the best price. So they’re getting the contract. But except for the color of the trucks going by your street, nothing’s going to change when Waste Management starts collecting in November. You’ll put out the same carts, recycle the same material, use the same 65¢ bag tags, get billed the same way, and have your trash collected on the same days you’re already familiar with. It’s going to be a big non-event. But I do want to thank our associates at Vogel for helping us pioneer a real breakthrough program which has become a model for all of Pennsylvania. Collection Connection has been a tremendous success and we are pleased to have had such a strong partner in that effort.
