Automated Trash Removal (Sanitation)

Curbside trash pick-up is provided once a week by Republic Services. Please click HERE for the map for the day by day neighborhood collection schedule.

On your scheduled trash day, please place your trash container out for collection no later than 6:00 a.m. Containers should be removed by 6:00 pm the day of the collection.

Container handles should face the house and be at least 3 feet away from mailboxes or lamp post to avoid damage to both.

Place container clear of vehicles, trees, fire hydrants and recycling pails. Also, due to safety concerns relating to above ground utility wires,

Medford Township is requesting that residents do not place their trash containers under any hanging utility wires.

In many areas the automated trash trucks do not have enough clearance to safely and effectively lift and dump the cans.

Medford Township and Republic Services appreciate your cooperation on this very important safety issue.

On the following holidays, trash collection will be delayed by one day for the remainder of that week: New Years Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

For example, if New Years Day is a Tuesday, Tuesdays collection will be changed to Wednesday; Wednesday's collection to Thursday, Thursday's to Friday; and Friday's to Saturday.

No container should be placed at the roadside earlier than the evening of the day preceding a scheduled collection day. Containers must be free of all vegetation and recyclables.

(See Recycling page for more information)

***For any trash related questions or concerns, including missed collections or requests for new or replacement containers, please contact Republic Services directly at 856-533-5270 or 215-744-2995 or email [email protected] or [email protected] ***

**As a reminder, liquid paint cannot be disposed of through regular trash collection. Residents who have liquid paint to dispose of may bring it to the DPW yard during regular business hours. This includes paints, stains, varnishes, paint strippers and thinners. DPW yard hours are Monday through Friday from 7 am to 2 pm and every third Saturday from 8 am to 1 pm; excluding holidays. Residents who have empty paint cans with no liquid paint in them can dispose of those cans through regular trash. Additives that turn liquid paint to a solid can also be purchased through home improvement stores. Once the paint is solid, it can also be disposed of through regular trash. Residents who are unsure and need assistance can call the Department of Public Works at 609-654-6791. We appreciate your cooperation in this regard.

Bulk Trash Pick-Up

Bulk Trash collection services are currently provided by Republic Services. This service is available to residential properties two (2) times per month; either of the 1st & 3rd Wednesday or the 2nd & 4th Wednesday.

If you are located in Area "A," pick ups are scheduled on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays. If you are located in Area "B," pick-ups are scheduled on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays on the month. Please click HERE for a map with the Areas.

Residents must schedule a pick-up in advance; no later than noon on the Monday preceding the Wednesday pick-up request. Please use our Citizen Service Request program (Click HERE); e-mail Kim Gitto at [email protected] or call 609-654-6791 extension 316.

Please keep in mind that Medford's Bulk Collection program is NOT for the purpose of removing demolition or construction projects. The intended purpose is to assist residents in removing normal household items such as furniture and other large items too big to fit in the trash containers. Our current policy allows for the pickup of 2 large items (furniture) and/or 5 other allowable items. Whole house move-in/move-out cleaning is not permitted.

Refrigerators or freezers requested for bulk collection MUST have the doors removed prior to placement at the street.

Please do not place items to curb until the night before your collection day. And as always if you have a question please feel free to contact us at the number on the right.

There are restrictions and exclusions to this service, including construction debris, and recyclables such as televisions and computers.

The State of New Jersey's Clean Energy Program offers free pick-up plus rebates for recycling certain appliances such as refrigerators. Check their website for more details. Appliance Recycling Program

Residents are encouraged to consider donating usable items to a local charity such as Goodwill, located on Old Marlton Pike & Hartford Road; or Purple Heart, one of several which will pick-up items to be donated.

There are also several social media sites such as Medford 08055 Yard Sale on Facebook or Freecycle.

Street Sweeping

The Street Cleaning Program runs annually from April through October in order for Medford Township to be in compliance with NJ State Stormwater Management regulations.

The Township sweeps the commercial and downtown streets once per month during these times. Neighborhood streets are not included in the street sweeping program.

Street Sweeping
