Trash Removal Guidelines


Trash and Leaf Collection:

Trash, recycling, lawn debris, and brush are picked up on the same day by our hauling company.  Only during summer months will leaves and lawn debris be picked up by South Jersey Sanitation.


  • Trash consists of household waste only, not construction material. Receptacles shall be plastic or metal or bags not to exceed 30 gallons or fifty (50) pounds.
  • Containers or other items to be disposed of shall be placed outside after 6:00 PM of the day immediately preceeding the day of collection.
  • After collection, any empty containers shall be removed from curbside promptly, but no later than 7:00 PM of the day of collection.
  • A maximum of 10 items, not exceeding a total of 300 pounds, may be placed at the curb for regular pickup.
  • Residents undergoing construction, moving, “spring cleaning,” or emptying garages, must contact a disposal company for a dumpster.  NOTE: There is a permit application for dumpsters or PODS.

Recycling Guidelines, see flyer below.

Bulk Items:

  • All “bulky” items waste including, but not limited to furniture, mattress, carpeting, sinks, toilets, doors and windows (up to 3 or 4 units), bundled wood in 4 foot sections not to exceed fifty pounds will be picked up on your regular trash day.

Organic Materials:

  • Lawn debris/grass clippings and brush are taken for recycling April through October, and must be placed in an open container. DO NOT USE THE TOWNSHIP RED RECYCLING CONTAINERS FOR LAWN AND ORGANIC DEBRIS.
  • Organic material placed in plastic bags will not be recycled.
  • Brush and branches may either be tied and bundled in 4 foot sections or placed neatly in an open container to facilitate efficiency and the safety of sanitation employees.

Leaf Collection:

  • Township residents are encouraged to rake leaves weekly into the street but away from the curb flow line and any storm sewers to prevent flooding.


  • Latex or Water-Based Paint Disposal: Water based paint can be disposed of with regular trash, provided it is first dried out. For more information on how to dry out water- based latex paint click here, or go to page 8 of  The RECYCLER.
  • Oil-Based Paint Disposal: Oil-based paint is harmful to the environment if not properly disposed. Camden County offers the collection of these paints, as well other hazardous materials on special collection dates. Click here for 2017 collection dates, times and locations
