Trash Collection Map

A split service schedule is when a municipality adjusts its trash collection to 1 day a week collection for certain months of the year and switches back to 2 days a week during the warmer months. 

Florence Township operates on a split service schedule for sanitation collection as follows:

TWICE A WEEK PICK UP                          ONCE A WEEK PICK UP
April                                                                November
May                                                                 December
June                                                                January
July                                                                 February
August                                                             March

Once (1x) a week pickup begins on November 1st and twice (2x) a week trash collection begins on April 1st of each year.  

Here is the schedule for when trash collection moves from 2x a week to 1x a week:

TWICE A WEEK PICK UP                          ONCE A WEEK PICK UP
Monday and Thursday                                    Monday

Tuesday and Friday                                       Tuesday

Wednesday and Friday                                   Wednesday

Trash service under the 1x a week schedule is picked up on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays as noted above.

Residents are encouraged to check the township’s website at (www.florence-nj.gov) and view notices posted on Florence Township Television Comcast Channel 19 for periodic changes that may be needed based upon inclement weather or other factors.

If the landfill is closed and trash cannot be picked up on your normally scheduled day, then collection will occur on the very next regular workday.

Example: If your trash collection occurs on a Monday and the landfill is closed, then your trash will be collected on Tuesday.  Trash removal simply occurs the next day.

Residents with questions can call the Township Clerk’s Office of the municipal building at (609) 499-2525 between the hours of 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday – Friday.
