Due to the volume of debris created by this week’s severe wind and storms, Mayor Chuck Cahn and the Department of Public Works have announced special expanded services to help residents dispose of storm-related debris and yard waste.
From July 25 to Aug. 7, residents may call the Department of Public Works (856-424-4422) to schedule a special storm-related yard-waste collection. Normal weight and bundling restrictions will be relaxed for these properties, and Township personnel will collect any yard debris that has been placed at the curb. Collection will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis; due to high call volume, crews may take several days to complete collection. No requests will be considered after Aug. 7.
Please note: We cannot accommodate requests to move trees or large limbs from private property. We will only collect debris that has been placed at the curb, and cut to a size that can be handled by one person. Any yard-waste that meets our standard weight and bundling guidelines (cut to 4-foot lengths and placed in bundles no more than 50 lbs. each) may still be placed curbside for standard weekly collection.
We thank you for your patience and cooperation as we attempt to help ease clean-up efforts. For questions or concerns, or to schedule a pickup, call the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422.
