NO COMMERCIAL TRASH/CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS
There shall be no collection of commercial trash or construction debris by the Township of Monroe as defined in Chapter 239 of the Monroe Township Code.
COMMERCIAL TRASH – Any debris, garbage, or trash not created by household consumption or use or any other debris, garbage, or trash such as building materials and other discarded items not normally accumulated through household consumption, even if such debris was generated by a household.
CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS – Debris that is generated by a contractor or by an occupant. A dumpster will be required on-site during all phases of construction or demolition. The Construction Code Official will advise of dumpster requirements at the time of permit application.
How should you properly dispose of construction materials/debris?
Residents who need to dispose of construction material have the following options for proper disposal.
Option 1 – Contractor Disposal
Residents are advised to have their contractor dispose of all waste as part of the terms of the work contract. Disposal of this material by residents can be expensive and difficult to transport.
Option 2 – Hire a Clean Out / Garbage Hauler Service
Waste hauling companies can provide a dumpster for your property (a permit is needed to leave the dumpster in the street) and a clean out service will remove the materials from your property. These companies can be found through recommendations of friends and family or an Internet search.
Option 3 – Bring Material to The Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex
The Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex is owned and operated by the Gloucester County Improvement Authority. Located in South Harrison Township, the Solid Waste Complex is a sanitary landfill situated on a 540-acre tract of land. For more information, please call 856-478-6045 or visit the website: https://www.gcianj.com/solid-waste-complex/
Is metal considered bulk pick up…
Metal is NOT picked up with bulk trash. Since metal can be recycled through our recycling program, we require residents to notify our department to schedule a separate pick-up. Metal is picked up every Friday regardless of your bulk pick-up day. The request must be received by 2:00 pm on the Thursday prior to your pick-up. Residents can request picked up either through our website or by calling 856.629.4444.
