Christmas Tree Pick-up, Zone 7 Recycling

Dec. 29, 2020

Hazlet DPW advises that Christmas trees will be picked up with the next scheduled brush pick up, which will occur the second and third weeks in January in your zone. 

Also, DPW will be picking up recycling in ZONE 7 on Monday Jan. 4. That information seems to be missing from the schedule, our apologies. 
Any concerns or questions can be submitted directly to the department members using on the simple form at this link.


The Hazlet Department of Public Works strives to actively maintain the Township’s properties and public roadways for the safety and well-being of our residents and neighbors.
