New Requirements for Mattresses, Box Springs Bulk Trash Collection

Advanced Disposal, the Township’s solid waste hauler, now requires that all mattresses and box springs placed out for bulk collection must be wrapped in plastic. This is in accordance with industry standards and is for the safety of hauler employees. Bulk collection is the 3rd pickup of each month. This requirement will take effect in March 2020. 

Unwrapped mattresses are a hazard risk due to potential pests as well as the potential for excessive weight due to precipitation. 

Plastic mattress bags may be purchased at most hardware and home improvement stores.
