Large Trash Items
All large items, i.e. mattresses, box springs, rugs, large glass doors, etc... will be collected on a once a month basis and residents must request an appointment. To request an appointment either call the DPW at 973-326-7398 or submit an online request.
Online Request Form / All requests should be submitted the Friday prior to scheduled pick-up dates. All requests will be processed in the order they are received. The Department of Public Works shall make every attempt to accommodate all resident requests. In the event of a question or if a request cannot be accommodated, you will receive either a phone call or email from our office with an explanation.
The items will be collected by a separate vehicle. Please follow all guidelines outlined here:
- Wrap large glass doors with cardboard and tape
- Rugs should be cut, rolled, and tied in a roll not exceeding 50 pounds
- Mattresses and Box springs must be wrapped in plastic prior to placing out for disposal
- Items should not be more than four (4) feet in length
- If you are moving, please notify us well in advance
We have made a significant change to our Large Trash Item Collection Program. We will continue with the current practice of “Appointments Only” *, however, effective January 1, 2022, Large Trash Item Collection will take place on a designated Friday of each month. The designated Friday is determined by your normally scheduled pick-up day for Trash Collection.
Your current, regularly scheduled Trash Collection day will have a new designation. If your Trash Collection is scheduled for Mondays, you will now be “Area 1”; Tuesdays will be “Area 2”; Wednesdays will be “Area 3”, and Thursdays will be “Area 4”.
As to when residents will have their Large Trash Item(s) picked up, that will be determined as the new Trash Collection day designations go into effect.
“Appointments Only” * Large Trash Item Collection for Area 1 will be the first Friday of the month; Area 2 will be the second Friday of the month; Area 3 will be the third Friday of the month, and Area 4 will be the last Friday of the month.
You can also review the chart below to see which Friday will be your Large Trash Item Collection Day.
