Township, Casworth Enterprises Make Trash Collection Official

The sides signed the contract on Friday.

Casworth Enterprises will officially assume trash collection responsibilities in Moorestown on Monday.

Representatives from Casworth Enterprises and the township officially signed the three-year contract Friday afternoon, according to Township Manager Scott Carew.

Township Council approved the contract to privatize trash collection on Jan. 28.

The company’s bid called for the township to pay $425,732.80 the first year; $427,350.80 the second year; and $428,968.96 the third year, according to the township’s website.

On Friday, the township reminded residents that collection begins on Monday, and that there will be no change in terms of what or how much trash residents can put out.

Collection days also remain the same, but collection times may change.

Residents who have problems or questions concerning the collection should call 856-848-3505.

The township had been spending about $1.3 million on trash collection.

All the township’s current trash collectors will be reassigned within the Department of Public Works. There will be no layoffs, Carew said.

Casworth Enterprises, founded in 1986 and based out of Gloucester County, collects trash for 14 towns in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties, including Riverside and Medford.  

It collects for towns comparable in size to Moorestown, as well as Washington Township, whose population is about 10,000, compared to 6,800 for Moorestown.

Yesterday was the filing deadline for Town Council, yes. Haven't heard who the official candidates are - will the Patch be doing some sort of article on the candidates who are running?

As long as the candidates work with and for the people they serve. Time to vote with our heads.
