As of January 1, 2019, only Portland Township is running the recycling program being offered at Municipal Supply at 1 Industrial Dr. Portland, east off Lyons Rd.  Danby Township has resigned from the joint program.  This means that only Portland Township residents can use this recycling program.  The dates that the containers are available to drop off items are the 4th Saturday and Sunday of each month.  The drop off times are between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.
