Garbage Collection

As you may be aware, April 30, 2012 marked the first day of a five-year garbage collection contract with Central Jersey Waste (CJW), a private Ewing-based company. This arrangement will bring a projected $500,000 annual savings for the township, with no additional fees for residents, no change in collection schedule and fewer scheduled holidays. To help with the transition, we’ve collected and answered below a few of the questions we receive most often. If you would like further clarification or have additional questions or concerns not addressed here, please contact our Public Works Department or Central Jersey Waste directly. Contact information is listed below.

What about brush and tree parts?
Tree parts must be brought to the site on Jack Stephan Way – brush and tree parts placed in the street are reason for citations and / or fines.

What about grass and leaf bags? Must we bag our lawn waste, or may we just rake or blow them into piles?
CJW will pick up a limited number of bags, but residents are always welcome and encouraged to bring them to Jack Stephan Way. Loose piles in the street are permitted during the months of March, April, November and December.

What about bulk items?
CJW will pick up three (3) bulk items on your regular trash collection day. Bulk items may also be brought to 136 Scotch Road during operating hours (M-F 7am-4pm, Sat 7am-3:30pm)
