Garbage collection may be disrupted by emergency
situations. Snowfall or equipment problems are possible causes of such
disruptions. Garbage District vehicles and crews are part of the
Township's snow removal team and this has historically been the only
cause of disruption in collection of garbage. East Windsor Township will
make every effort to collect garbage immediately after any disruption
caused by emergency situations or as soon as crews have rested after
prolonged snow operations.
When garbage collection is disrupted by emergencies,
leave your trash at the curb. It will be collected by additional crews
later in the same day or as soon as possible thereafter. Please do not
put trash in the street during snow emergencies as it impedes proper
plowing and frequently becomes scattered when hit by snow from the
