2020 Curbside Bulk Pick Up Schedule

BULK PICK-UP DATES WILL RESUME IN
JUNE 2020

TWO MONTHS OF ADDITIONAL BULK PICK-UP (NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER) WILL BE ADDED TO THE SCHEDULE

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING

Trash Zones 1 & 2 will be have bulk pick up on the first Monday of the month, from January through October. (2020 - Bulk Pick-Up will run through December)

Trash Zones 3 & 4 will have bulk trash pick up on the second Monday of the month, from January through October.  (2020 - Bulk Pick-Up will run through December)

Please follow these very important guidelines:

  • This option is only for residential properties
  • All bulk items shall be placed behind the curb or edge of pavement and not in the street.
  • Appliance disposal will require prior scheduling through the main office (732-747-0241, ext.*219). There will be a $15.00 fee for the appliance disposal sticker, which must be placed on the appliance. Refrigerator doors and large coolers must have the door or lid removed when placed at the curb.
  • E-waste disposal (TV, Computers, Game Stations, etc.) will require prior scheduling through the main office (732-747-0241, ext.*219). E-Waste items must be separate from other bulk items and please place smaller e-waste items in a separate container.
  • No trash bags will be accepted for bulk pick up.
  • All metal items must be placed in a separate pile.
  • Bulk pick up will be limited to what, in the opinion of the Director of Public Works, is a reasonable amount of bulk, not to exceed what would fit into a small pickup truck. There will be no full basement cleanouts or whole house move outs.
  • No construction debris will be picked up, including: cabinets, flooring, plumbing fixtures, drywall, yard fencing or large swing sets.
  • There will NOT be bulk pick up during November and December as our DPW crews are dedicated to extensive leaf collection

The following items are classed as appliances: washer, dryer, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator/freezers (doors must be removed), air conditioners, and water heaters.

There Will No Longer Be Weekly Scheduled Bulk Pick Ups
