Limit to Size of Trash-Recycling Containers

Important Notice for All Borough Residents

Effective March 1, 2020, in an effort to minimize the incidence of back injury to our DPW staff members:

  • All trash and recycling containers must be 34 gallons or less and weigh 40 pounds or less; cans larger than 34 gallon capacity and/or overweight cans will not be picked up.
  • Recycling containers must also have holes in the bottom to drain off liquids and rainwater.
  • Oversized or "robo-type" cans cannot be used for household trash, leaf, brush or recycling collection.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
