Trash is collected once a week by Garden State Removal.  If you experience any problems with pick-up, please contact the Town Hall (609)268-1220 or Garden State Removal (609) 261-0556.   Containers should be no more and no more than a 32lb size. Anyone placing a container that does not conform to this size must identify clearly and legibly that this container is not a trash item if they wish for it to remain at the premises. Failure to identify this container may result in its disposal by the trash company and they will assume no liablity for its removal.
If your trash day falls on a holiday, your trash will be picked up the next day. Holidays falling on a Monday DO NOT affect our schedule as the normal trash days are: Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. 
You are allowed to have one (1) bulk item per week with your regular trash. A bulk item might include items such as furniture (non-metal items only), mattress or box springs (not both).  Carpeting (limit of 5 rolls cut into 4 foot lengths). All bulk items have a limit of 50lbs each. 
If you are attempting to dispose of construction materials, both indoor and outdoor, or landscaping materials, including fencing, railroad ties, concrete, etc., you must make arrangements to dispose of this on your own. Check the phone directory for listings on dumpsters, haulers, etc.  You have the option of taking materials to the Burlington County Landfill.  (609)499-5200.
The trash contractor WILL NOT accept items placed in cardboard with the exception of broken glass. The heavy cardboard box should be taped and labeled that it contains broken glass to protect the workers from injury. All other cardboard is to be recycled.  The contractor also WILL NOT accept leaves or brush.  The trash contractor CANNOT return for late curb placement. PLEASE HAVE CONTAINERS OUT BY 6:00 a.m.

        ARE YOU PLANNING TO MOVE?             

Please be advised that if you are moving and you have a large amount of household trash to be disposed of, you must make your own arrangements to dispose of these items, such as a dumpster.  If arrangements cannot be made in advance of a settlement buyers are urged to request that money be held in escrow to cover any costs to dispose of these materials.  The township's contract does not include the cost for disposal of house contents in bulk and as such it is a homeowner responsibility to dispose of large quantities of goods.
