How to Make Public Works Work for You

Public Works is responsible for removal of trash, bulk waste and yard debris, in addition to maintenance of municipal roads and snow removal.

Trash is collected once a week.

Bulk waste, appliances, wood, etc. are collected monthly. You MUST call Public Works to schedule your pick-up!

Loose leaf collection is scheduled by Public Works in the spring and fall. Signs are posted. Recycling of paper, glass and plastic is mandatory and handled by Atlantic County. Pick-ups are every other Thursday.

Road resurfacing is scheduled by the Township Administration on a priority basis determined by the Municipal Engineer.

A word about Snow Removal - following a snow storm, street plowing is done on a priority basis, major municipal roads are plowed first, followed by secondary streets, followed by residential areas. So if you live on a cul-de-sac or one block street, yours will not be the first road plowed, but it will be plowed. To avoid the problem of being “plowed in” after you shovel your driveway, pile snow to the right of the driveway when looking out to the street!

This is Your Community - Keep EHT Clean!

Many People Chose a Community Based on Its School System

Children are an Investment in the Future

EHT Has One of the Best School Systems in Atlantic County

EHT offers a K through 12 education. The School Board (consisting of 9 elected members) meetings are held the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays of the month at the EHT Intermediate School, 25 Alder Ave. Meetings are open to the public. Both the budget and school board members are voted on in April of the year. Be sure to participate, nearly 63% of your property taxes go to our school system.

A Community of Volunteers

Egg Harbor Township has a paid Police Department, a Volunteer Fire Department and both paid & volunteer members of the Rescue Squad.

The Fire Department needs volunteers & consists of five local departments:

Cardiff Volunteer Fire Department

Farmington Volunteer Fire Department

Scullville Volunteer Fire Department

West Atlantic City Volunteer Fire Department

Bargaintown Volunteer Fire Department

The Township has grown from a rural area to suburbs in a very short time. Because of our narrow roads and lack of sidewalks in many areas it is important that you drive carefully to protect our children. Egg Harbor Township Police are serious about drunk driving, speeding, tailgating and other forms of aggressive driving.

Where Your Taxes Go

EHT, like every municipality is a tax collector for the county and school board. Very little (13.92%) of the taxes you pay actually go to the municipal government to pay for services such as trash collection, police protection, town hall etc. This also includes money for uncollected taxes (people who can’t or won’t pay their taxes.)

62.75% of your taxes go to the school district.
Board of Education - 646-7911

23.33% of your taxes go to the county government
County of Atlantic - 343-2201

Remember, the best way to have a say in where you taxes go is to get involved!
