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!

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.
