ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - Beginning July 1, 2010, the Borough’s policy on the collection of BULK items will change. The Borough Sanitation Department will only collect BULK once a month, per zone.

BULK items shall mean large household items, excluding building/construction materials, and all similar waste and debris which is not ordinarily generated as household garbage or which may now or in the future be excluded by the Monmouth County Reclamation Center as acceptable residential type garbage. A “reasonable” amount of bulk will be collected. The amount of bulk collected should not fill more than the back of a pickup truck - an eight foot by four foot area. If your bulk collection takes up more than an eight by four area, you will be required to get a dumpster and have a private company haul away your materials.

There will be no BULK pickup on the 3rd, 4th and 5th Saturdays following recycling collection.  BULK collections will be as follows:

Zone 1 – The First Saturday of the month

Zone 2 – The Second Saturday of the month

 

The collection of recycled goods, which is mandatory, will continue to be picked- up on Wednesdays with the exception of the 5th Wednesday.

Zone 1 – First and Third Wednesday of the Month

Zone 2 – Second and Fourth Wednesday of the Month

 

The pickup of “white” appliances (refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, air conditioners, microwaves, computers, etc. ) will be by appointment only. You should make every effort to have your appliances hauled away by the vendor that you purchased from. The Street Department will no longer travel every street, every Friday, to locate appliances.

Removal Permit: Prior to placing any appliance item at curbside for collection, the owner, tenant or resident of the premises shall complete a form provided by the Borough and pay the required fee, in order to obtain a removal permit. Such permit shall be affixed to the item to be removed by the borough.

Collection:  All appliance items placed for collection shall be placed curbside no earlier than 7:00 p.m. on the day before the designated collection day and not later than 6:00 a.m. of the collection day. Before placing any refrigerator or freezer for collection, all doors must be fully removed. Refrigerators and freezers shall be placed for collection with the open side facing up.

Permit Fee: The fee for obtaining a removal permit shall be fifteen ($15.00) dollars per item.

Enforcement: This subsection shall be enforced by the Atlantic Highlands Police Department and/or the Atlantic Highlands Code Enforcement Officer.
