Public Works: Garbage Collection Information

TRASH

Place at curbside by 7:00 AM. All garbage/trash must be placed inside suitable bags or containers with handles or tied and bundled. 

Containers, bags, or bundles should not exceed 50 lbs. Please call 609 567-0700 x9001 or email publicworks@winslowtownship.com with any questions you may have.

Cut, roll and tie carpet neatly so it can be hauled away (4 ft. length, less than 50 lbs.)

Bulk items such as couches and furniture can be placed out "as is" for collection.

Contractors doing renovations or construction work on your property cannot leave trash at the curb; they must remove all trash.

No trash, garbage or recyclable shall be placed at the point designated for collection at or near any street, alley, lane, road, highway or other public place earlier than 5:00 PM on the day before the day designated for collection.

 

SPECIAL WASTE

includes automotive liquids, chemicals, fuels, household cleaners, paint related products (oil paints), pesticides and solvents. These hazardous materials cannot be disposed of with your regular trash. The Camden County Division of Environmental Affairs can be reached at www.camdencounty.com or by calling 856-858-5241 for their locations and drop-off dates.

Water based only latex paint (cleans up with soap & water) can be disposed of in your regular trash once it’s dried out. To achieve the drying out technique; put a strong plastic bag in a cardboard box, then place kitty litter or sand into the plastic bag. Pour the water based paint into the plastic bag. If needed, add more kitty litter or sand. When the paint is dried out, tie the plastic bag and discard into the trash. When the inside of the empty paint can is hardened, you may dispose of it in the regular trash with the lid off.

DO NOT PUT YOUR PAPER RECYCLABLES IN PLASTIC BAGS.

Recycling

All residents are reminded that recycling is indeed the law, both statewide and locally. But the benefits of recycling should also be seriously considered. By removing recyclables from the regular trash flow, we help save our environment. 

How to Recycle

Recycling carts issued by Winslow township with the green lid are collected each week on your trash day. Use your cart space wisely, compress and flatten recyclables to maximize cart space.
