About the Author

Trash is picked up and hauled by Waste Management of New Jersey, under contract with Hamilton Township. The Mercer County Improvement Authority picks up both kinds of recycling, and requests that all residents observe the recycling regulations printed on the decals on the recycling dumpsters.

Schedules

• Our regular days for trash pickup (green dumpsters) are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
• For Recycling of glass-plastic-metal AND paper, pickup is every otherThursday

When taking out the trash (from the Book of Grandville Rules and Regulations)

• Secure all trash in plastic and double-bag it if odorous
• Open a dumpster lid and place trash inside, THEN CLOSE THE LID--it helpsthe odor problem to keep all lids closed, even ones you didn’t open
• Do NOT leave trash and recyclable materials on the ground. This puts usall at risk from rats. If necessary, find a dumpster in another court that hasroom. Anyone witnessed leaving trash on the ground or on top of a dumpster issubject to immediate $25.00 fine.
• Cardboard boxes for recycling must be broken down flat before you placethem in the recycling dumpster. Anyone witnessed not breaking down boxes beforeplacing them in the dumpster is subject to immediate $25.00 fine.

What to do when the dumpsters are overflowing

• Wait for Target’s on-site supervisor, Joe Hall (can sometimes be found in the garage between buildings 13 and 14), to affect pickups. He inspects the dumpsters on a daily basis and knows whom to call.
• Call (877) 988-8639 x300 to alert Grandville Property Manager, Dan Licardo,or email him at dlicardo@targetpm.com. He will be glad to arrange for immediatepickup of trash and recyclables.
• Please also call to alert Hamilton Mayor, Glen D. Gilmore. He invitesresidents to call his office at 890-3502 or to contact him via email at GGilmore@Hamiltonnj.com.He levies fines against Waste Management when they fail to meet their schedule.
• Do NOT leave trash and recyclable materials on the ground or on top ofthe dumpsters. This puts us all at risk from rats. If necessary, find a dumpsterin another court that has room. Anyone witnessed leaving trash on the groundor on top of a dumpster is subject to immediate $25.00 fine.

What to do with bulky items (too big for the dumpsters)

• Leave bulky items next to the trash dumpsters, but NOT blocking access to them. Call 587-1500 to check on who picks up which items, and to alert Waste Management and schedule pickup of the items.

What to do when the dumpsters start to smell bad

• Always close the lids on the dumpsters after you dispose of your trash and recyclable items.
• Call Waste Management to request that they dispense deodorizing crystalsin the trash dumpsters.
