Are You Planning to Move?

The Township will accept several extra bags of garbage at curbside on your second pickup, but you must contact a private hauler (located in the phone book under rubbish removal) to arrange for a container for the removal of all large items. The Sanitation Department is not obligated to pickup up the contents of a whole house at the curb. Residents will be subject to a summons if these instructions are not followed.
