Trash to be collected every TUESDAY!
Beginning Tuesday, April 3rd!
The Borough’s 5-year contract with Central Jersey finally comes to an end after trash pickup on Friday, March 30th – they last day they will be responsible for curbside trash collection.
As a result the Borough solicited bids* from trash collection contractors from across the state and we’re happy to report that Republic Services, an experienced, professional firm won the very competitive contract.
Republic Services has offices in Mt. Laurel, NJ and automated collection (like we have here in Palmyra) is their specialty.
Bulk trash will remain the first Monday of every month.
Check back here for more information in the coming weeks.
*In order to obtain the lowest, responsive bid possible the trash collection contractors were permitted to select, from a range of days, the curbside trash collection day that worked best for their operations. Republic Service’s winning bid totaled $1,118,306.40 over 5 years for both curbside and dumpster services.
