Curbside Bulk Collection

NORTH ZONE - Bulk collection is every other week, on the Thursday after your recycling collection day.

SOUTH ZONE - Bulk collection is every other week, on the Friday after your recycling collection day.

Bulk

Bulk items are considered large items that do not fit into the black garbage cart, such as furniture, mattresses, etc.  Bulk items in garbage bags will not be collected.  

Please note that bulk is collected in a separate truck from the garbage collection.  Bulk waste must be less than 6 feet in length and no more than 75 pounds each.  Residents are permitted up to four pieces of bulk, per bulk collection day.

To Bulk or Not to Bulk?

That is the question.  Here is the answer:

The following items are NOT considered bulk and ARE RECYCLABLE:

o    Metal items (BBQ grills, weight benches & weights, bed rails, etc.)

o    Rigid & Heavy Plastics (coolers, children’s toys & playhouses, plastic sheds, etc.) 

o    Household Appliances (refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, AC units, etc.)

o    Electronics (TVs, computers, stereos, cell phones, etc.)

o    Yard Waste (brush & leaves)

These items MUST be recycled by bringing them to the Township Recycling Center on  Kanes Lane or by calling DPW to have them picked-up curbside for a fee (yard waste excluded).  Please do not place these items curbside with regular recycling or bulk.


The following items are NOT considered bulk and are NOT RECYCLED at Kanes Lane:

o    Construction & Demolition Debris (lumber, concrete, bricks, asphalt, drywall, etc.)

o    Landscaping Debris (dirt, gravel, stone, concrete pavers, wood ties, etc.)

o    Styrofoam & Packing Foam (*will be accepted & recycled at Kanes Lane in 2020!  Stay tuned!)

These items MUST be disposed of at the proper solid waste or recycling facilities.  


Please note that cardboard (not matter how large) is not considered bulk, it must be recycled (broken down and placed inside your blue Township-provided recycling cart).

Please note that styrofoam is also not considered bulk, nor recycling.  It must be broken down and placed in your black garbage cart (COMING in 2020:  Styrofoam recycling at Kanes Lane!)

There is no bulk collection on the following holidays: New Years day, Independence day, Thanksgiving day and Christmas day.  If your bulk day falls on one of these, it will be collected on the following Saturday.
