NOTE FOR 2023: Avalon is transitioning to standard solid waste and recycling roll out carts. The roll out carts are made of highly durable recycling products. The carts can be used with tippers attached to trash and recycling trucks. They are equipped with hinged lids, which keeps rainwater and sea birds out of the containers. This keeps the town clean and eliminates water weight that the Borough pays for via trash tipping fees. Additionally, the cans come with ten-year warranties and have RDFI chips, serial numbers, and bar codes so cans can be returned to a property after a severe storm event. The cans are on wheels and very easy to move over any terrain. All carts will be kept in a database maintained by the Borough of Avalon in the event the cart is lost or there is breakage.

Every property owner receives one 95 gallon solid waste cart, and one 95 gallon recycling cart. They are purchased by the Borough of Avalon, and remain the property of the Borough. The Borough assigns one cart each to every property in the community. Black carts are used for solid waste, blue carts for recycling. A property owner is allowed to obtain one additional 95-gallon cart for a non-refundable deposit of $100; this cart is also assigned to the residence and not to the individual as they remain the property of the Borough of Avalon. Carts of different sizes will be not be assigned to an individual property. The new carts will be delivered to your address this spring, and the cans must be used the Monday after Mother’s Day, May 15, 2023. The carts will be placed on your property at a date to be determined.
Your current trash cans can be used for brush collection. If you no longer want your cans, the Borough will collect them for you on any Tuesday . Simply call Public Works at (609) 967-7694 and provide your name, address, and how many cans you want removed by the Borough. Kindly turn the can upside down and we will remove it for you.
