The Township only collects a small amount of rugs, one 10' x 12' room per household per year.

New & Major Residential Construction

In addition, regular sanitation collection will not begin at a new residential unit until the Building Department has issued a Certificate of Occupancy, or a person(s) has moved into the home. There are no exceptions to these regulations.

Residents performing major home improvements and renovations must dispose of their construction or demolition debris by bringing it to an approved facility or, by renting a dumpster.
