CHATHAM, NJ - Starting Thursday, Aug. 7, Suburban Disposal of Fairfield will be collecting garbage in Chatham Borough. Suburban takes over the contract Chatham made with B&B Disposal.
The Chatham Borough Council approved the contract transfer requested by B&B at its July 28 meeting.
The green B&B garbage bags will continue to be collected by Suburban through the completion of the contract, which runs through Dec. 31, 2015.
Due to an increase in the hauler tipping fees at the Morris County Waste Facility, the price of the disposable garbage bags will increase: Large bags from from $1.36 to $1.41 per bag. Small bags from .70 centers per bag to .71 cents per bag.
- Zone pickup days will remain the same. Zone A: Monday and Thursday. Zone B: Tuesday and Friday.
