A Message From Public Works Regarding The Significant Snow Fall Anticipated On March 14

Because of the potentially large snowfall anticipated for Tuesday, March 14, Waste Management will be collecting Tuesday’s scheduled trash and recycling on Wednesday, March 15. Yard waste and white goods will also be collected on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday’s trash and recycling pick up will be unaffected and remains on a regular schedule.

To help prepare for the possibility of significant snow, residents with driveways are encouraged to place their vehicles in their driveways before snowfall begins. Also, if at all possible, Public Works recommends that residents wait to shovel driveway aprons until after their street is plowed. This will help insure that snow plows do not block driveways as they clear Township streets.

Residents and business owners are reminded that there is a Township ordinance prohibiting the throwing, placing or depositing of snow into any street in Pennsauken. In addition, snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks within 12 hours of daylight after snow has stopped falling. Please also be sure to keep fire hydrants and stormwater drains clear of snow and ice.

Please note that when Public Works begins plowing, priority is given to main arteries to allow first responders to safely respond to emergencies. There are 12-square miles of road that Public Works is responsible for. Work crews will do their best to plow every street as quickly and efficiently as possible.  

Pennsauken’s Public Works Department appreciates the patience and flexibility of residents as we work to deal with severe weather conditions as they occur.
