Recycling Center

Single Stream

Residents of Lehman and nearby townships alike, are welcome to use our new, expanded, Recycling Center.  Our new center is located in the rear of the township offices; follow the road down the left side of the buildings.  While this service is free for our Lehman Township tax-payers, a $25 yearly household fee must be paid by non-resident recyclers.

Here at Lehman, we use Single Stream recycling where you do not have to separate your recycling in order to make a difference! Please see the Single Stream Instructions Below.  We ask everyone to be respectful of our beautiful town.  If you drop your recycling, please pick it up.  We appreciate everyone for doing their part in keeping Lehman clean!




Please fill out RESIDENT Recycling Permit form and return with copy of current registration.  You may bring registration in during regular business hours for verification as well. Each permit issued is good for the lifetime of the vehicle. If you get a new car and need to transfer said permit, please contact us.


New Permits - Please fill out NON-RESDIENT Recycling Permit form (if this is not a renewal) and return with a copy of current registration and yearly fee of $25. Each household may obtain up to 4 Recycling permits per household (each vehicle registration is required).  You may bring registration(s) in during regular business hours for verification as well.  Payment must be made in cash or Check (made out to “Lehman Township”) and is due in January of each year.
