ARE YOU MOVING IN OR OUT OF TOWN? HERE ARE SOME HELPFUL HINTS
Call the Public Works Office at (609)693-1100, ext. 2301 first to get specific information relating to your move or for questions relating to the disposal of out of the ordinary items. Don't assume that everything you throw out will be collected. Call us first!
- Carpet, must be bundled and tied if you want to get it collected on your normal trash day. Don't just throw it out in a heap. It must be bundled and tied up in lengths no longer than 4' weighing no more than 50 lbs. per bundle. (Don't put it out in the rain unless you cover it with a tarp. Wet carpet will become heavy and exceed the weight limit). Collection is limited to 1 room per collection day.
New Toilet, dispose of your old one on your normal trash day. You must separate the tank from the bowl for easier collection.
- If you are emptying out the contents of a house, you must get a dumpster. There are several reputable haulers out there, call around to get the best price. Expect to pay for the rental of the dumpster and the disposal fee at the landfill. Trash just thrown out and piled up at the curb will surely generate a visit from our Code Enforcement Office.
