When holidays fall on Mondays or Tuesdays, garbage and recycling pickup will be pushed back a day (Zone 3 to Thursday and Zone 4 to Friday). Remember, bulk trash is only collected once a month in your zone so if a holiday occurs on your bulk trash pickup week, you will have to wait until the next month.
The holidays that will affect your trash, recycling, and bulk pick up this year are:
Monday, January 15: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Monday, February 12: Lincoln’s Birthday
Monday, February 19: Washington’s Birthday/ President’s Day
Friday, March 30: Good Friday
Monday, May 28: Memorial Day
Wednesday, July 4: Fourth of July
Monday, September 3: Labor Day
Monday, October 8: Columbus Day
Tuesday, November 6: Election Day
Monday, November 12: Veteran’s Day (Observed)
Thursday, November 22: Thanksgiving Day
Friday, November 23: Black Friday
Tuesday, December 25: Christmas Day
Call the DPW for questions or an appointment at 732-905-3405 to have bulk trash (items, such as brush, metal, leaves, e-waste, and sanitation bulk) picked up.
Besides calling for an appointment to pick up bulk trash, residents can also schedule a pickup at http://lakewood.mobile311.com, which they can save as an icon to make it an app.
Although the app is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the DPW is open Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., exclusive of holidays. All requests, however, will be viewed the next business day.
