The Public Works Department collects and disposes of all your residential household trash and recyclables. The Department is also responsible for the maintenance and repair of the Township streets, traffic signs, recreation facilities, equipment, all of the Township buildings and parks, along with the Township motor vehicle fleet and power equipment. The sanitary sewer system is also maintained and operated by the Public Works Department. We also offer compost leaf mulch to our residents, which is available in the summer months.
Please try to utilize off-street parking so the plows can successfully clear the roadways. Attempt to wait until the roadway is clear before clearing your driveway to avoid the snow being plowed back into the driveway. When removing snow from the sidewalk and driveways please do not shovel or snow blow snow back into the street. All state roads are plowed and maintained by NJDOT. County roads are plowed and maintained by Camden County Highway Dept. Township personnel are only responsible for plowing municipal roadways

Flushing disposable wipes, diapers, feminine products and paper towels plug sewer lines.
Cleaning wipes, sanitary wipes, paper towels and feminine products are designed to function when wet. These products don’t break down in sewers and consequently can plug sewer service lines, mains and the pumps at the Township sewer pumping stations.
Avoid sewer backups and pumping station backups by throwing these items in the trash. Do not flush them down the toilet.
Driveway and/or sidewalk replacement
A Street Opening Permit will need to be completed if you are doing any Driveway and/or sidewalk replacement work. This form can be obtained by visiting the Township Clerk’s Office. If the driveway work that is being performed is located behind the sidewalk closest to your property then a Zoning Permit will need to be completed. This form can be obtained online or by visiting the Zoning Office.
