Recycling & Solid Waste

Annual Loose Leaves Cleanup
Leaf season begins on November 1 and ends December 31 of each year. This is the only time that loose leaves may be raked into the edge of the street for collection. Grass clippings may be mixed with leaves, but please do not intermix any trash or brush. There will be no brush pickup during leaf season. City forces will follow a systematic route and conduct a city-wide sweep for leaf pickup. Once the entire route is completed, it will be repeated as necessary. The specific times and locations for leaf pickup will vary based upon the volume of leaves encountered and the workload requirements for city forces. Please be patient as we make our rounds - we will get to everyone. Also new this year and due to the reduced work-week for city employees, residents are strongly encouraged to put their leaves out loose and not bag wherever possible. This will help to make our operations more efficient by minimizing the necessity for a second labor crew to pick up bags. Your cooperation with this is greatly appreciated.

Trash and Recyclables

Electronic Waste
Beginning January 1, 2011, electronic waste (e-waste) will no longer be picked up at curbside but must be delivered to the City of Millville Public Works Complex located at 416 S. 15th Street. Electronic waste includes TVs, computers, monitors, laptops, fluorescent lamps, light ballasts, car batteries, household batteries, and cell phones. The Cumberland County Improvement Authority has provided the city with a shed located at the Public Works Complex, 416 S. 15th Street to be utilized for the drop-off and temporary storage of all electronic waste products. Residents are encouraged to begin now in taking advantage of the drop-off at the Public Works Complex as the curbside service will be phased out over the next couple of months.
