Trash

Trash

Trash containers shall be metal or plastic, water tight, have handles, not exceed 32 gallons, and weigh no more than 50 pounds when filled. Plastic bags may be used in place of containers, but must not be overloaded or ruptured. Metal drums not originally designed to contain trash are not acceptable. Please secure trash from animals.

Any trash or construction debris generated by a contractor is the responsibility of the contractor and homeowner. The Township will not remove this waste, even if it is placed curbside. Residents should insist that the contractor use a dumpster and private waste hauler for construction waste.

All trash must be placed at the curb before 6:00 a.m. on trash day, but not before 6:00 p.m. on the day prior to collection. After collection, any empty containers shall be removed from the curbside promptly. Do not park in front of trash containers or otherwise block access to your trash on trash day.

Waste that does not comply will not be picked up until it is brought into compliance with these regulations.

Proper Disposal of Household Medication
1. Keep medicine in original container. Mark out personal information on prescription bottles.
2. Mix liquid medicine with undesireable substances like coffee grinds, cat litter, or dirt. Dilute pills with water, then add coffee grinds, cat litter or dirt.
3. Place bottles in an opaque container, like yogurt container, and secure the lid; or wrap in a dark colored plastic bag.
4. Hide the container in the trash. Do NOT recycle.

DO NOT DISPOSE OF MEDICATION DOWN THE DRAIN OR TOILET.

WHAT TYPES OF BATTERIES SHOULD I RECYCLE?

Recycle all Rechargeable Batteries.

  • Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd)
  • Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH)
  • Lithium Ion (Li-ion)
  • Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn)
  • Small Sealed Lead-less than 11 lbs. (Pb)

Rechargeable batteries can be found in cordless power tools, cellular and cordless phones, laptop computers, digital cameras, two-way radios, camcorders, and remote control toys.  Rechargeable batteries sometimes look like regular alkaline batteries.  The label on the battery will indicate if it is rechargeable.  If it says “Alkaline”, dispose of it in the regular trash.

WHAT ABOUT BUTTON CELL BATTERIES?

Most button cell batteries still contain mercury.  These batteries can be brought to your County’s Household Hazardous Waste events.

Paint Disposal Advisory
Latex Paint must be allowed to dry, or the container filled with kitty litter or sand to absorb all the paint. Another technique is to pour the latex-based paint into a paper box or bag filled with absorbent material like shredded newspaper to speed drying. When the paint is dry or totally absorbed, the container should be placed out with the trash for pickup. Do not place large quanitities of paint cans out for disposal.

Oil Based Paint is considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of at one of the Gloucester County Household Special Waste Collection Days. For more information please visit their website at www.gcianj.com

Special Pickups 
Furniture, appliances and wood no longer than four feet will be collected on the same day as household trash. Any refuse or building material generated by a building contractor is the responsibility of the contractor for removal.
