Loyalist Township has a pay-as-you-throw system, meaning that residents must purchase garbage bag tags in order to dispose of non-recyclable waste. Garbage bag tags are $2.50 each ($25 for a sheet of ten).
Some residents may still have old tags with a $2 face value. While these can no longer be used for curbside pickup as of January 1, 2016, unused tags can be traded in for a credit toward the purchase of $2.50 tags. Please note, any trade-ins must be done at the Odessa Municipal Office.
