Medford Township has out-sourced the weekly curb-side trash collection. Details of the change to outsourced trash collection are being finalized and will be mailed to all residents. The contractor, Casworth Services, Inc., was chosen by a competitive bid in the fall, and will begin serving Medford Township on January 8, 2013.
Due to the fact that Casworth will complete all trash collection in Medford in 4 days each week instead of the current 5 day collection schedule, there will be some changes to the collection schedule. The details of the schedule changes are being finalized by the Township, and will be mailed to all affected residents when the are completed.
Casworth will collect trash using automated trucks similar to what Medford uses now, and resident will continue to use the same trash totes they currently have.
The contract with Casworth includes bulk trash collection twice per month at curbside. Bulk will be collected on Wednesday. Half of the town will have bulk collected on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday, the other half will have bulk collected on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday. The mailing to resident will identify which areas are collected on which weeks.
- Casworth will be collecting Christmas trees two (2) weeks in January. Information will be in the Township mailer.
- Hours at the Township garage (“dump”) will be reduced to the 3rd Saturday of each month, per month.
