As a reminder, please do not flush any kind of wipes down your toilet. Although the packaging on certain wipes states that they are flushable, doing so causes blockages in our public sewerage system. With the increased use of wipes as a cleaning agent against the spread of COVID-19, we have been experiencing increased issues of sewer blockage because people are flushing them. Please treat wipes as household waste and throw them away in the trash. Thank you for your assistance.
Based on guidance from the Gloucester County Office of Emergency Management, containerized yard waste collection for Tuesday, March 23 will be postponed. We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your patience and understanding in this dynamic situation. We will continue to update you when we have more information on the next scheduled pick up.
