The Borough of Netcong recently amended its code to require household garbage to be stored in metal or plastic cans with lids (garbage receptacles). Residents can no longer store or place garbage out for collection in plastic bags. Please be advised, effective immediately, garbage will no longer be collected if it is not in a proper garbage receptacle.
When stored outside, garbage receptacles are to be stored in the rear or side yard, and not closer than 10 feet to any property line. Receptacles are the responsibility of the property owner.
All other garbage collection dates and regulations are unchanged and will remain the same.Borough of Netcong
