WOODBRIDGE – Mayor John E. McCormac announced the return of FREE Township-wide garage sale weekends and bulk waste pick-up beginning April 6 in Menlo Park Terrace and Fords (Recycling District #5; Zones 1-5). The Woodbridge Township “Spring Clean-Up 2013” includes permit-free Saturday and Sunday garage sale(s) followed by free curb-side bulk waste pick-up.
“The tradition of Spring cleaning continues with the return of permit-free garage sale weekends followed by free bulk waste pick-up courtesy of the Township Department of Public Works,” said McCormac. “This Spring, let’s step-up our clean-up and recycling efforts – what you don’t sell or give away on Saturday and Sunday – put at the curb for collection by Public Works on the scheduled day for bulk waste pick-up in your neighborhood. And, once again, you can advertise your garage sale on the Township web page free-of-charge – so log-on… advertise your yard sale or find out who is having the best garage sale in town.”
