Recyclables:
The whole town will have recyclables picked up on FRIDAYS each week.
The newest trend in recycling is, "Single Stream Recycling". This makes it easier for you to recycle by allowing you to mix your paper in with your cans and bottles. They can all go in the same red recycling can. The recycling plant will sort out the paper from the cans and bottles. If you would like to separate them still you may, but they all go into the same truck.

Yard Waste:
Will now go out on your regular trash day. You no longer have to leave the lid off the container nor leave the bag untied. Branches still need to be tied, bundled in 4 foot lengths, or in cans. The yard waste will be picked up by the same truck picking up your trash.

We not only will save money with the Magnolia Agreement, but we feel the collection process is simpler, and we expect the service to be better.
If you have any questions regarding this new change, please feel free to contact Borough Hall, (856) 783-0600.

Metal:
Picked up by Public Works Department - not necessary to call the Borough Hall for metal pick-up. Pick up every other week on Thursday and Friday, weather permitting. You can call the Borough Hall to find out what week Public Works is on. Scrap metals consist of metals that are not to be put into your recycling containers including washers, dryers, refrigerators, hot water heaters, stoves and air conditioners. There cannot be any concrete attached.
