Due to severe staffing shortages at the County level, recycling collection continues to be delayed. This delay will likely last through July. The latest update received from the County indicates that the next recycling collection will take place late in the week of June 14th. In an effort to assist residents with disposal of recyclables, the Township has extended the hours of the DPW yard for recycling drop-off.
In addition to regular yard hours, the DPW yard will be open late on Tuesday and Thursday, starting on Tuesday, June 15th. The yard will remain open until 6 pm for Medford Township residents to dispose of RECYCLING ONLY, i.e., cardboard, paper, glass, and aluminum. No other items will be accepted between 2 pm and 6 pm. Residents will be required to show proof of residency and will be required to remove recyclables from any plastic bags used to transport recyclables.
These extended hours will remain in effect until further notice. Residents are encouraged to download the RecycleCoach app on their smartphone for the latest updates on recycling collections. More info on this app can be found on the Recycling page on the Twp. website. Residents with questions about yard hours may also call the Department of Neighborhood Services at 609-654-6791.
Residents with questions about recycling should call the County Recycling Hotline at 609-267-6889 or visit the County Recycling website at . Updates are posted on their website daily.
