Hydrant Flushing

Fire Hydrant Flushing is scheduled throughout the year.   Flushing will be conducted Monday through Friday between 7 am and 5 pm.  During flushing time, please avoid using dishwashers, washing machines and running hot water.

Any questions, please contact Haddon Township Water Department at 856-833-6260 between the hours of 7 am and 3 pm.

Township water department will be flushing hydrants periodically throughout the year.  You may experience low water pressure during this time and a discoloration.  Please run water until discoloration disappears and water runs clear.  If you have any questions, please call the Department of Public Works garage at 856-833-6260.

Leaf Collection

Township crews will be  making routine weekly collections on all Haddon Township streets. Township residents are encouraged to rake leaf piles weekly into the street, but away from any storm sewers inlets to prevent flooding. Residents can expect leaves to be picked up every 7-10 work days, depending on weather conditions.  Additional work crews will be added as we go through the season.

Trash and Leaf Collection:

Trash, recycling, lawn debris, and brush are picked up on the same day by our hauling company. Lawn debris/grass clippings and brush  must be placed in an open container.


  • 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.
