Garbage Collection Information
Place at curbside by 7am. All garbage/trash must be placed inside suitable bags and in the Winslow Township issued container with the lid closed. No material can be sticking out of the lid. No loose bags or additional containers will be dumped.
There are six holidays a year that may affect your trash collection schedule: New Years Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. If your trash collection day is on one of these holidays or if the holiday is during the week and your trash follows the holiday during that week, your collection will be a day later. See our website home page for any changes that may arise at www.winslowtownship.com.
