This coming Saturday, North Ward residents can leave items where they usually place their garbage for collection and removal. All items must be left by 7 am on Saturday and such items for cleanup should not be placed until the night before.
As was published on the City of Trenton website: “Items allowed for pickup include discarded furniture, refrigerators, and smaller articles. Wood (separate clean from painted) and tree branches no more than four feet in length and tied in bundles of no more than 35 lbs. will also be collected. The trucks will only move through each street once, so your items must be left in time to be discarded.
Tires, bricks, concrete, and construction debris will not be picked up by the City. These materials are the responsibility of the owner or contractor. Additionally, the clean-up does not apply to vacant houses, which must be cleaned out at the owner’s expense. Electronic devices, such as televisions, laptops, etc., are also not eligible for pickup under the Electronic Waste Management Act. Contact the Mercer County Improvement Authority at 609-278-8086 to learn how to dispose of these items. For more information, please call the Department of Public Works at 609-989-3151.
Many thanks to Mayor Reed Gusciora, the City of Trenton Department of Public Works and the Department of Recreation, Natural Resources & Culture for listening to Trentonians from all over the city and making these Cleanup Saturdays happen in every Ward. I hope that North Ward residents will take great advantage of the cleanup this Saturday and make our Ward the one that produces the most items for our City staff!
