Shamong Township Residents
Along with our traditional once a week curbside service (five (5) trash bags or five(5) thirty (30) gallon trash cans), we now provide our customers with the option of 64 gallon totes (for senior citizens 63 years or older) or 96 gallon totes** It’s a convenient, concise, and mess free way to dispose of your trash! Tote customers are restricted to one (1) tote and their weekly or bi-weekly bulk item collection. If you choose a tote program, you will be limited to the amount of the trash the tote can hold with the lid closed level. All trash must be bagged properly and placed curbside or in a trash can. Any non-bagged or loosely placed trash will not be collected! Any excess trash outside of that can will not be collected or charged to your account. Other arrangements can be made. Additional fee for multiple totes.
One bulk item is allowed per week along with your weekly collection. Bulk item collections may be called into our office for scheduling 24 hours prior to your pick up day. Bulk items include but are not limited to: sofa, chair, mattress, box spring, wooden table/desk, etc.. Items that are not included as a bulk pick up include: miscellaneous light metal items, TV’s, car parts, electronics, washers, dryers, refrigerators, tires, batteries,etc. These items are collected separately for recycling purposes and absolutely cannot go as trash!
