Maximum capacity for trash cans/containers is 30 gallons.  Pursuant to State Storm water Management Regulations, debris may NOT be placed in the roadway or within 10 feet of storm drain outlets. 

Bulk trash such as mattresses, wood bed frames, furniture, rugs (tied and cut in 3' lengths) and similar items should be placed at the curb for collection on your regular trash day.  Residents should be reasonable in the amount of bulk items they place at the curb side on any one collection day.

Sanitation collection is completed by Central Jersey Waste, 432 Stokes Avenue, Ewing, NJ 08638.  Telephone 609-771-8005. 

All brush 12" in diameter or less is to be cut in 5-6' lengths and neatly placed at the curb (not in the street) by 7am as follows EXCEPT during leaf collection:

Appliances, Scrap Metal and Tires.  Residents must call 856-235-3520 to schedule a pick up.  Material must be curbside by 7 AM.  These items may also be brought to the Public Works Center, SATURDAY only, between 8 AM and Noon.  (A maximum of two (2) tires per household will be accepted on Saturday.)

Construction Debris: 
Small amounts of residential construction debris from minor projects will be collected.  Generally these projects produce less than 3' x 3' of waste.  Construction debris from larger projects will not be collected and is the resident's and/or contractor's responsibility for proper removal and disposal.  Residents may bring up to 3' x 3' of construction debris to the Public Works facility on Saturday mornings. Residents should contact Public Works for a permit to bring the debris on Saturday.  Concrete, concrete blocks or brick cannot be collected curbside - residents should take them to a private recycling center.

Hazardous Waste:  Public Works will not accept hazardous waste.  These materials may be disposed of through the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex according to their prescribed schedule.  Please contact the County at 609-499-5317 for details.
