 Additional Reminders as Tenants Prepare to Leave Town:

  • Trash and recycling cannot be placed at the curb prior to 6 p.m. the evening before your scheduled pick up.
  • Bulk items left at the curb or elsewhere, as well as excessive trash, will result at fees being charged and invoiced to landlords. This may impact security deposits. More reason to participate in the program!
  • If tenants need to close, transfer, or open electric accounts with the City of Newark, they can avoid lines or a wait on the telephone by doing so online.

Additional questions may be directed to the Public Works and Water Resources Department at (302) 366-7000; bulk collection of items may be available.
