LINDEN, NJ - The City of Linden is canceling all bulk pickups until further notice due to staffing changes and a shortage in manpower caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a post by Mayor Derek Armstead on Facebook.

As an alternative, Linden residents can drop off their bulk trash on Saturdays 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at 700 Lower Road. Proof of residency is required.
