Trash Collection (EHT)

New residents should contact Public Works for their designated collection day. Only receptacles provided by the Township will be collected. 

Trash containing recyclable materials will be tagged and left curbside. 

Your trash container is for regular household trash only. The container has a weight limit of 300 lbs and is assigned to your specific address (remains with the property even if you move). Have your container at the curb and available for collection by or before 6:00 a.m. on your regular collection day.

PLEASE PLACE THE CONTAINER AT THE CURB OR ON THE EDGE OF THE STREET WITH THE LID OPENING FACING THE STREET. DO NOT PLACE THE CONTAINER BEHIND OR NEAR VEHICLES, MAILBOXES OR OTHER CONTAINER (such as recycling) and leave approximately 10 feet between the container and any other objects (recycling, telephone pole, parked cars, mailboxes, hydrants, etc.).

Only regular household trash placed in the container will be collected. Any loose or bagged trash placed next to the container will not be collected. Bulk trash will be collected according to the schedule below. The monthly collection of bulky trash is not for regular or excess sanitary waste.

POLICIES AND SAFE PRACTICES FOR PLACING ITEMS AT THE CURB FOR REMOVAL
There is a maximum weekly limit of one 96 gallon receptacle per household. The weight of your receptacle must not exceed 300 lbs.
Bulky waste and receptacles placed at the curb for collection should not be placed in the vicinity of mailboxes or vehicles.
Trash receptacles must not be allowed to collect rainwater. Trash container lids should be kept closed to avoid allowing the container to collect water. Water weighs 8 pounds per gallon. It substantially increases the costs of disposing of the trash thereby wasting your tax dollars.
Medical waste such as needles should not be placed curbside for collection.
Wood debris must have the nails either bent over or removed to minimize the potential for puncture injuries.
Pool chemicals must not be placed at the curb for pick up as they can present a toxic fume, fire and explosion hazard that can risk the health of not only the sanitation workers but also for the surrounding public. Pool chemicals can be properly disposed of at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority. For more information please call the ACUA at 609-272-6950
