Due to the holiday collection schedule, South Zone residents can place excess trash bags outside of their carts on Friday, December 28th and Friday, January 4th. The garbage contractor will tip the cart, reload it once with the extra trash, and then tip the cart a second time. Normal trash collection rules will resume on Tuesday, January 8th.
The collection of extra South Zone garbage this Friday will cause Bulk Collection to be delayed until Saturday, December 29th. Christmas trees may be put out for Bulk Collection or they can be recycled if brought to the Middletown Recycling Center. Please check the DPW website for updates or call the Middletown Garbage & Recycling Hotline at 732-615-3233 for updated information.
