The Department of Public Works is working with you for a better Lavallette.
A complete schedule of trash collection for your
area of town can be identified by the chart below.
All taxpayers should make sure that their tenants have a schedule in each rental and necessary I.D.
Current Collection Schedule:
Preparation & Regulations
Garbage placed for Municipal collection shall not contain any of the designated recyclable materials, materials resulting from demolition, construction or hazardous waste. Each receptacle or bag should weigh no more than 40lbs. Make sure there are enough receptacles needed to hold the garbage until the next collection day.
Garbage should not be placed at the curb prior to 7:00 p.m. the day before collection. Please take cans in at your earliest convenience. 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. A container for small bulky items such as lamps, vacuum cleaners, and brush etc. will be available at the recycling Center for disposal free of charge.
Weekend Household Waste Drop Off
Lavallette Recycling Center will now accept regular household waste and small bulk trash. Residents can bring their trash down to the Center from 7:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. This is a great opportunity for those who need the extra pickup because of rentals, parties or any other reason. When visiting our Recycling Center identification and proof of residency may be required for each visit. These include a utility bill, tax bill or driver’s license. Anyone who wishes to obtain a copy of their Municipal Bill as proof of residency can do so at Public Works Office or Borough Hall.
Placing household trash in public litter receptacles is a violation of Borough Code.
Your cooperation is necessary to keep our community clean and litter free.
