We are pleased to announce that the Borough will begin taking appointments for the reinstatement of bulk pick-up beginning Monday, April 12, 2021 at 9:00am. To schedule an appointment, please call DPW at 732-632-8519 but please be patient as we expect significant demand.
Bulk pickup is scheduled by quadrant and there are 25 slots available daily for scheduling. Bulk pick-up is completed weekly in each quadrant. Wednesdays are dedicated to metal pick-up which is also scheduled by phone through DPW.
To be as fair as possible to all residents and to ensure equitable use of the bulk pick-up service, we ask that each household limit itself to two bulk pick-ups per year, with up to five items per scheduled pick-up.
Please be mindful that all items taken by DPW by way of bulk pick-up end up being taken to a landfill and add to the Borough’s cost of what are known as solid waste tipping fees. To the extent that you seek to recycle or repurpose your garbage, we encourage residents to contact a variety of charities and other organizations that recycle and repurpose furniture and household items. For example, the Green Drop at 359 Amboy Avenue accepts gently-used items under 50lbs.
