Trash & Recycling Collection

  • Bulk trash collection items can be placed out on your regularly scheduled trash day. No more than three bulk items are permitted on your scheduled trash day in addition to your trash receptacles. Please call the public works department 856-853-0892 to notify when bulk items will be placed at the curb at your residence.
  • Trash and recycling containers should be metal or plastic, watertight, have handles, not exceed 32 gallons and weigh no more than 50 pounds when filled.
  • Plastic trash bags may be used in place of containers, but must not be overloaded or ruptured. Metal drums not originally designed to contain trash are NOT acceptable.
  • Five-gallon buckets are not considered a proper container for trash and/or recycles. If you place your recycles or trash in a five-gallon bucket, it will be collected as a recycled item as they are recyclable. It is not considered a reusable container. Please use a reusable container to ensure proper pick-up.
  • Any trash or construction debris generated by a contractor is the responsibility of the contractor and the homeowner. The City will not remove this waste, even if it is placed curbside. Residents should insist that the contractor use a dumpster and private hauler for construction debris.
  • All trash must be placed at the curb before 7 am on trash day, but not before 5 pm on the day prior to collection. After collection, empty containers shall be removed from the curbside promptly, no later than 7 pm.
