Heavy Item Pick Up

The two collections scheduled for 2024 are the weeks of May 13th and September 9th.   All residents are required to register the items to be picked up by calling the Department of Public Works at 973-410-5330 no later than noon on the Thursday before the scheduled collection.  Failure to call on time may result in your items not being picked up.  All items must be placed above the curb by 7:00 a.m. Monday of the scheduled collection week. We request, if possible, that you place metal items into a separate pile.

Items that will NOT be picked up include hazardous materials such as oil tanks, gas cans, propane tanks, fertilizer, any type of aerosol cans, paint (latex paint that is open and dried out in its container will be accepted), contractor construction or demolition debris, quantities of fencing, railroad ties, tires, firewood, logs, stumps, or any items in plastic garbage bags.  No glass will be accepted, including windows, sliding glass doors, and mirrors.

Mini refrigerators, window air conditioners, dehumidifiers, televisions, computers, monitors, laptops, portable computers, printers and fax machines cannot be accepted for Heavy Item Pick Up. These items can be taken to the Environmental Center for E-Waste recycling.

Standard size refrigerators, freezers and other larger items containing refrigerants (CFC’s/Freon) will not be picked up unless the DPW office has been provided with written documentation indicating that the refrigerant has been legally removed from the item by a certified professional. Please check with First Energy to see if a refrigerator/freezer recycling program is in effect.
