BORDENTOWN, NJ-- Wondering how Thanksgiving will affect your garbage pick up this week as well as government business the day after?

The holiday, which is on Thursday, November 26, does not affect recycling in Bordentown, as the County does its collection every other Monday. 

In Bordentown City, those streets whose trash is picked up on Thursdays will have to hold it until next week, as garbage will not be collected. On Friday, November 27, Public Works will be resuming pick up on its normal Tuesday/Friday street route.

In Bordentown Township, trash will not be collected on Thursday in Zone 3 as usual. However, streets in Zone 3 will have their garbage picked up on Friday instead.

Because Thanksgiving is a state, county and federal holiday, those government offices will be closed. The municipal offices in the City and Township will also be closed on both Thanksgiving Day and Friday, November 27. They will re-open on Monday, November 30. However, the municipal buildings in both the Township and also the City are closed to the public due to rising COVID-19 cases.
