Did You Mark Your Calendar? Trash and Bulk Pickup Changes in Lakewood Start January 1, 2018

Posted on December 22, 2017 By

Starting January 1, 2018, all normal trash (green can) and recycling (yellow can) pickups for Thursday and Friday will be collected the day before. So if the normal pickup day was Thursday, it is now Wednesday. If your normal pickup day was Friday, it is now Thursday.

Starting January 1, 2018, the bulk trash pickup day will be Friday (not Wednesdays), every week according to your zone*. Bulk trash are items, such as brush, metal, leaves, e-waste, and sanitation bulk. All residents must call the DPW for an appointment at 732-905-3405 to have bulk trash picked up. Remember, bulk trash is only collected once a month in your zone so if a holiday occurs on your bulk trash pickup week, you will have to wait until the next month.

Besides calling for an appointment to pick up bulk trash, residents can also schedule a pickup at http://lakewood.mobile311.com, which they can save as an icon to make it an app. Although the app is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the DPW is open Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., exclusive of holidays.  All requests, however, will be viewed the next business day.
