FANWOOD, NJ -- The Fanwood Borough Council passed an ordinance during Tuesday’s Regular Council Meeting on April 17 that allows regular trash collection once a week instead of the previously mandatory twice a week.

The Council believes the change may save residents some money if they only require once-a-week trash pickup. Those who require twice a week pick up may continue to have that service.

Residents must call their trash vendor to make the appropriate arrangements. is Scotch Plains-Fanwood’s only free daily paper. Sign up for our daily eNews and follow us on Facebook and twitter @SPF_TAP. Download the free TAPinto App for iPhone or Android.
