Temporary Trash Collection Schedule:
The Collingswood DPW Trash Team is in full swing collecting trash, recyclables and yard debris throughout the Borough. Despite the high temperatures and daunting workload, our crew continues the difficult job of catch up from the lack of service the Borough received from Seaside Waste. 

Please take note of the temporary collection plan in place:

  • Regular trash is being picked up on your normal schedule. 
  • Wednesday (not a regular trash day for anyone in town), we will be catching up on recycling and grass/brush left from Monday and Tuesday's normal schedule. 
  • On Thursday and Friday, plan is to pick up trash, recyclables and grass/brush on the regular day.
  • On Saturday and Sunday, we will be catching up on recyclables and grass/brush remaining from Thursday and Friday schedule.

We appreciate your patience as our crews continue to collect. Please continue to report issues through the "Report an Issue" button on Collingswood.com or by contacting the Borough. 

The Borough is hiring sanitation workers starting at $18 per hour! Please visit our employment opportunities page to apply for a position today.

Christmas Trees
The Borough will pick up old Christmas trees placed at curbside on regular trash days. Call public works at 856-858-0533 for more info. To prepare your Christmas trees for chipping, remove all lights, decorations, nails and tree stands. Do not cover trees with plastic bags.
