Drop Off Procedure

All residents are required to show proof of residency (i.e. a driver's license or tax bill) at the gate. Large amounts of construction debris are not acceptable. A township employee manages the large item drop off site. His or her decision to accept or reject any item is final.

Follow the information signs, arrows, and traffic control devices when utilizing the service. Residents are required to off-load all items that they bring to the DPW yard. The township does not provide an employee to off load items from the residents' vehicle. The department employee's responsibilities are to coordinate the parking of cars and the use of our large item containers.

Vehicle Size

Residents may transport the acceptable items to the site in a vehicle no larger than a pickup truck or van. Commercial sized U-Haul, Hertz, box trucks or medium to large duty dump trucks are not permitted at the site.
