Trash Collection Schedule
Trash Collection Once a Week: Place cans weighing less than 40 pounds at curb by 6:00 AM; cans cannot be placed at curb prior to evening before pick-up. No earth material or car parts. See above guidelines.
No Trash Collection on Major Holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Trash collection on the holidays (and the days following the holiday) will usually be one day later. Observed holidays will be treated as a regularly scheduled week, unless otherwise posted. We will post any changes due to these holidays on the main page of the website under "News" and on our Westampton Township Facebook page. Please call the Clerk's office if you need further information/clarification.
When any of the 6 National Holidays occur on the Day of Service, Waste Management is closed, and that service day goes to the next day.
The other two days of service should not be impacted, as their local yard makes Westampton a high priority to get serviced.
Examples of all scenarios below:
Christmas, New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving. Waste Management Trenton Closed, so if any of these days occur on:
- Monday-Holiday closed… then Monday Service goes to Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Service stay the Same.
- Wednesday-Holiday closed… then Wednesday service goes to Thursday, and we still service the Thursday route same day and Monday stays on Monday.
- Thursday-Holiday closed… then Thursday goes to Friday, Monday and Wednesday stay same as normal.
