UPDATE as of June 2023: To beat the heat this summer, crews will collect trash at 6:30 a.m.
Residential Trash Collection: Trash should be curbside by 6:30 AM the day of scheduled collection. The very earliest trash may be placed at the curb is dusk (or sunset) the day before.
Residents should be advised that effective March 1, 2022, the township will see a change to its trash collection procedures. Previously, the township's trash contractor did not pick up receptacles exceeding 32 gallons. Beginning March 1, the contractor will pick up cans exceeding 32 gallons if the trash can has handles and wheels.
The Department of Public Works will affix a notice to containers indicating that the containers do not comply with the township code § 92-8 or 92-9 and providing warning that further use of said containers will result in township refusal to make collections from said containers.
Provided, however, that receptacles that are badly broken, in disrepair or otherwise fail to meet the requirements set forth in § 92-8 or 92-9 may be treated as rubbish and collected and disposed of as such by the township.
Your District for all things to do with Public Works is determined by your Trash Day.
If your trash is picked up on Monday, you are District 1.
If your trash is picked up on Tuesday, you are District 2.
If your trash is picked up on Wednesday, you are District 3.
If your trash is picked up on Thursday, you are District 4.
