BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The 2021 Residential Bulk Pick-Up Program will be returning this year beginning Monday, May 3 in Section #1 and will continue through May 18. All acceptable materials must be placed at the curb before 7 a.m. on the first clean up day scheduled for a section.
The contractor will cover each street only once. Therefore, it is very important that materials for pickup are at the curb for collection on the first day for each section. Small, loose items will be picked up only if suitably placed in a wood, metal, or other substantial container and the weight of the container and contents do not exceed 50 pounds.
Please adhere to the following schedule and ask that your materials are NOT left at the curbside until the appropriate date.
