Holidays Do Affect Trash and Bulk Pickup in Lakewood!

Posted on January 11, 2018 By

When holidays fall on Mondays or Tuesdays, garbage and recycling pickup will be pushed back a day (Zone 3 to Thursday and Zone 4 to Friday).   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.

The holidays that will affect your trash, recycling, and bulk pick up this year are:

Monday, January 15:             Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Monday, February 12:           Lincoln’s Birthday

Monday, February 19:           Washington’s Birthday/ President’s Day

Friday, March 30:                   Good Friday

Monday, May 28:                   Memorial Day

Wednesday, July 4:               Fourth of July

Monday, September 3:         Labor Day

Monday, October 8:               Columbus Day

Tuesday, November 6:           Election Day

Monday, November 12:         Veteran’s Day (Observed)

Thursday, November 22:       Thanksgiving Day

Friday, November 23:                        Thanksgiving Friday

Tuesday, December 25:         Christmas Day

Call the DPW for questions or an appointment at 732-905-3405 to have bulk trash (items, such as brush, metal, leaves, e-waste, and sanitation bulk) picked up. Besides calling for an appointment to pick up bulk trash, residents can also schedule a pickup at, 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.
