Residential / Commercial Debris and Construction Material

The deadline for curb side pick of all storm-damaged debris has passed. Pre-Sandy trash and recycling rules are now in effect. All garbage shall be placed in dark – colored, heavy – gauge plastic bags or metal, plastic or vinyl containers that are designed for such purpose with handles and a tight lid. The container shall be no more than fifty (50) gallons in volume. The lid may not be attached in such a manner, such as tied with a rope, string or cord, as to cause a hazard for municipal collection personnel. Garbage placed for municipal collection shall not contain any of the designated recyclable materials, materials resulting from demolition, construction or hazardous waste. Recycling materials shall be place at curbside during your regularly-scheduled recycling pick-up date. All materials resulting from demolition and construction must be disposed of at the property owner’s expense. The Borough will continue to accept clean beach sand. If you have not cleared the sand from your property at this point you will need to contact the Department of Public Works. The Department will inspect and provide guidance on the sand removal and/or disposal on a case by case basis.

Repairs to Substantially Damaged Structures

 If your home or business incurred damage, the Construction Department will need to determine if your structure has been substantially damaged. Substantially damaged means the cost to make your necessary repairs will meet or exceed 50% of the value of the structure. In Lavallette, we use the assessed value to make that determination.

 If you structure is substantially damaged, you may qualify for additional insurance money through the FEMA Increased Cost of Compliance Program (ICC).

 A form is attached for your reference and will need to be completed and submitted to the Construction Code Official in order for him to make the determination. Substantial Damage Form Pdf File

 Caution should be exercised when submitting this form. If a determination is made that your property did sustain substantial damage (50% or more) you will be required, along with the other needed repairs, to raise the structure in compliance with the Borough’s flood hazard ordinance.

 Also provided is a brochure relating to the FEMA’s Cost of Compliance Program (ICC). ICC Pdf File
