Interesting Facts About DPW
Here are some interesting facts about the DPW and the service they provide:
- The DPW considers the printed Borough calendar that is distributed at the beginning of each year to be their most definitive schedule. If you have a question about the sanitation schedule, check your Borough calendar! (Note: The calendar on this website follows the printed calendar plus includes updates necessitated by weather abnormalities and other unforeseen circumstances.)
- All rear-yard and curbside sanitation and recycling pickups are scheduled by route; to determine if your residence included the North/West or South/East route, please refer to the DPW Route Map.
- On curbside pickup days, rubbish or recycling should be placed at the curb after 7:00 p.m. the evening prior to and before 6:00 a.m. the morning of a scheduled pickup day.
- A general rule of thumb on Rubbish Collection day is, “If it’s out on the curb, it must be rubbish!” Please don’t leave bikes or even garbage containers near the curb unless you want them hauled away.
