CITY OF NEWARK REMINDS RESIDENTS:
BULK TRASH WILL BE PICKED UP ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 18
Bulk Trash was re-scheduled from Independence Day Holiday
Newark, NJ – July 11, 2012 – Mayor Cory A. Booker, the Newark Municipal Council, and Department of Neighborhood and Recreational Services Director Tharien Karim Arnold reminded residents today that bulk trash will be collected on Wednesday, July 18.
Bulk trash is normally collected on the first Wednesday of the month. However, bulk collection that would normally have occurred on Wednesday, July 4, was suspended that day in observance of the Independence Day holiday.
“I urge all of Newark’s residents to uphold the City’s sanitation ordinances and put out their bulk trash for pick-up on Wednesday, July 18. By being good neighbors, we will enjoy a cleaner and greener Newark,” said Mayor Booker.
“Residents should put out their bulk trash for pick-up on Wednesday, July 18, at their curbs by 6 a.m.,” Director Arnold said. “Placing out other trash that day may result in a fine. Other trash and recycling collections are being made according to regular schedules.”
Residents with any questions about municipal services, including trash pick-up and recycling, can contact the Non-emergency Call Center at (973) 733-4311.
