Solid waste/recycling municipal drop-off center. The Borough may provide, during regular business hours, a solid waste/recycling municipal drop-off site, should a need be determined by the Borough. This drop-off is to be used for residential solid waste/recycling that is inconvenient to place at curbside for scheduled bulk pickup. No construction debris in excess of 50 pounds generated by an individual, or from a single site, shall be deposited at the municipal drop-off site. All debris in excess of 50 pounds shall be taken to an approved recycling center or landfill. Proof of residency in the Borough of Lindenwold is required in order to use the municipal solid waste/recycling drop-off site. Such proof may be provided by a resident showing his or her driver's license or vehicle registration. In the event that a nonresident contractor is hauling bulk trash for a resident to the municipal drop-off site, a letter stating the resident's name, address and telephone number and the contractor's authorization to haul bulk trash from that residence with the resident's signature is required. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and within the discretion of the Public Works Superintendent, in-person authorization, given directly by the resident to the Public Works Superintendent or his designee, may be required before admittance of the nonresident contractor to the drop-off site.
It shall be unlawful for anyone to discard or dump along any street or road, on or off any right-of-way, any household or commercial solid waste, rubbish, refuse, junk, vehicle or vehicle parts, rubber tires, appliances, furniture or private property, except by written consent of the owner of said property, except in a place specifically designated for the purpose of solid waste storage or disposal.
No person shall carry or transport or cause or permit to be carried or transported through or along any public street any solid waste or other vegetable or animal refuse from outside the limits of the Borough into the Borough except as herein after limited and provided for.
In all cases where solid waste or other refuse is to be transported through the Borough and not dumped or otherwise disposed of therein, it shall be unlawful for the person transporting the same to make use of any street or other public place in the Borough for that purpose unless the vehicle in which the solid waste or other refuse is to be transported or that portion wherein the solid waste or other refuse may be contained, shall be thoroughly and securely covered and fastened down in order that there be no spilling of any solid waste or other refuse or escaping of odors, and unless the vehicle, or part thereof, shall be thoroughly watertight in order that there may be no leaking or draining.
New developments of multi-family residential units or commercial, institutional or industrial properties (pursuant to N.J.S.A. 13:1E-99.13a and 13:1E-99.16c) shall be subject to the following:
Any application to the Joint Land Use Board of the Borough of Lindenwold for subdivision or site plan-approval for the construction of multi-family dwellings of three or more units, single-family developments of 50 or more units or any commercial, institutional or industrial development for the utilization of 1,000 square feet or more of land must include a recycling plan. This plan must contain, at a minimum, the following:
A detailed analysis of the expected composition and amounts of solid waste and recyclables generated at the proposed development; and
Locations documented on the application's site plan that provide for convenient recycling opportunities for all owners, tenants, and occupants. The recycling area shall be of sufficient size, convenient location and contain other attributes (signage, lighting, fencing, etc.), as may be determined by the Municipal Recycling Coordinator.
Prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy by the Borough of Lindenwold, the owner of any new multi-family housing or commercial, institutional or industrial development must supply a copy of a duly executed contract with a hauling company for the purposes of collection and recycling of source-separated recyclable materials in those instances where the municipality does not otherwise provide this service.
Provision shall be made for the indoor, or enclosed outdoor, storage and pickup of solid waste, to be approved by the Municipal Engineer and the Borough Public Works Superintendent.
