The large item is available for residents only. Commercial businesses are prohibited. All residents are required to off-load all items that they bring to the drop off site. The township does not provide an employee to off load items from the residents vehicle. The department employees responsibilities are to coordinate the parking / backing of cars, and coordination of our large item container vendor(s).

Residents may transport the acceptable items to the site in a vehicle not larger than a pickup truck / van. Commercial sized U-Haul / hertz / box trucks or medium to large duty dump trucks are not permitted at the site regardless of the load. All residents are required to show proof of residency (i.e. a driver’s license or tax bill) at the gate. Large amounts of construction debris are not acceptable. A township employee manages the large item drop off site. His / her decision to accept or reject any item is final.
