By Monday, Bulky Debris from Hurricane Sandy Must Be Curbside

Final street-by-street collection of all bulky waste will begin in Middletown.

Middletown residents must place all bulky waste from Superstorm Sandy curbside by Monday, December 3, say township officials. 

Debris removal contractors perform one final street-by-street collection of all bulky waste.

Storm debris placed curbside after this collection will be the responsibility of the homeowner.

But this does not apply to leaves and brush. Brush must be placed curbside by Monday, December 17.   Brush contractors will then perform one final street by street collection of all brush.

Leaf and garbage collection will continue on its normal schedule by zone.

April I hope they pick up soon! I know people just want their homes and lives back to some sense of "normal", Gary I suppose you didn't have your home flooded, good for you but have some compassion. Get out of your bubble and see what your neighbors are dealing with! Grumpy well said! This trash is becoming a health hazard at this point. I know the township is working hard and doing their best.

I agree with you GJ, it seems like people are always looking for someone to blame if their lives are disrupted and the government is always there to fit the bill. And before you all start with the lectures, I live right off of Wilson Ave. and lost my furnace, hot water heater, sheetrock and pretty much the whole first floor. It stinks and it's been a miserable month but I always like to give credit were credit is due. The town has been great with text messages and calls keeping us informed, the cops and firemen have been super heroes in my book, the donations through the relief fund and all of the food, bleach, glovs are amazing and the women serving meals at the firhouse are also great. I always try to find the best even in a bad situation and there was a lot to be thankful for even though it was a bad storm.

Wondering about "brush contractors will do one final street by street collection" statement. We saw one in our neighborhood for the first time this past sunday am. They collected in front of two houses and left at 10:30 am. Was surprised to see them on sunday but strange to not move down the street toward the other homes. But very greatful we only have mounds of trees in front of our homes.

I believe the residents simply want their trash removed! Not too much to ask Joe! And Yes I so admire our township workers, committee members, and espically the VOLUNTEER fire departments and ambulance corps for their service. SOme lost homes while out helping others.

Gary should we leave it there? You are a whiner. People simply want the debris gone. Nothing about politics.
