Borough customers are permitted to place bulk waste at the CURB only for pickup by Borough staff. There will be no charge for this extra pickup service. The bulk waste pickup will follow the same routes and schedules as the regular refuse collection service, with one pickup truck-size load limit per customer. The refuse crew will not make extra trips to an address.
Tires, batteries, items too heavy for two people to handle, construction material, paint cans, ammunition and hazardous waste cannot be picked up during bulk waste collection. Residents are not to use cardboard boxes for items if it is raining or it is calling for rain as it makes it difficult for the refuse crew to pick up the boxes without them falling apart. The Borough reserves the right to not collect if there is too much or it is too heavy.
Please separate all Electronics when placing items at the curb. Most electronics need to be recycled and will not be accepted as bulk waste. Electronics that need to be recycled are:
- Desktop, Laptop & Server Computers
- Cell Phones/PDAs
- TVs & Monitors (CRT/LCD/LED/Plasma/Flat Screen)
- Desktop Printers
- Desktop Copiers
- UPS Systems/Battery Backups
- Computer Peripherals (Keyboards, Mice, Speakers, etc.)
- PC Peripherals & Components (External/Internal Drivers/PC Cards/Hubs)
If your electronic item is not on the list above, it cannot be accepted for recycling and should be placed with bulk waste.
