Department of Public Works
      On approx. April 1st,  the Department of Public Works began an emergency work schedule to safeguard the health of this department. DPW employees have been directed to practice a safe working distance of 6-feet from co-workers and residents.
      To maintain this safe working distance, residents are advised to not place large items curbside that require a ‘two-man operation’ to remove.  Items should be compact and not exceed 50lb in weight to allow one worker to lift. In addition, Organics pick up continues to be suspended until further notice
      The Trash & Recycling Facility on Watsontown-New Freedom Rd will remain open for all residents. Be advised that due to the coming Easter Holiday Weekend, the Trash & Recycling Facility will be CLOSED Friday 4/10 and Saturday 4/11. Regular operating hours will continue April 13th.

Trash & Recycling Facility
373 Watsontown-New Freedom Rd    Monday-Friday, 7am-2pm    Saturday, 8am-12pm
Berlin NJ 08009

      Our Department of Public Works strives to perform above expectations, especially during this time of doubt and uncertainty. If an item is left curbside, assume this is temporary until it can be safely removed with additional manpower. If you have any future concerns, feel free to contact me directly.

 The playgrounds are closed until further notice.

      Residents are encouraged to monitor our website for the most up to date information. We apologize for any operational inconvenience as we continue to work with County, State, and Federal government on this national emergency situation.

  • Report a concern: this includes reporting a pothole, trash or recycling issue and more use
