Under Middlesex Township’s new contract beginning, April 1, 2022, Waste Management (WM) is proud to continue to provide residents with automated cart services for waste and recycling collections for two years with optional extensions. Thank you for helping to keep our community clean and green.

ONCE-A-WEEK WASTE AND RECYCLING COLLECTION                                                                 Your waste and recycling will continue to be picked up on your regularly scheduled day. If you are unsure of your collection day,  contact WM. Carts must be at the curb no later than 5:30am. Please note that there are occasions when trash trucks may come earlier due to weather conditions or other circumstance. (If possible, it would be best to have trash and recycling at the curb the night before your collection day).

CART SERVICE FOR ALL RESIDENTS                                                                                             Under the new contract, all Township customers will use a 96- gallon cart for trash. If you do not have a cart, WM will de[1]liver one to you. Please bag all trash before placing it in your cart. This keeps your cart clean, employees safe and it helps prevent loose trash from being picked up by the wind.Cost for service is                                                                                                                                                    $84.87/quarter for April 1, 2022 – March 31, 2023 and                                                              $88.26/quarter for April 1, 2023—March 31, 2024

If you need additional tags for extra trash, you will need to purchase tags through Waste Management.  The Township will no longer have tags available at the office for purchase.
