Republic Services temporarily suspending bulk trash pickup in Cherry Hill
While trash and recyclable pick-up will continue, due to staffing shortages and concerns about the spread of COVID-19,  Republic Services  will temporarily suspend bulk collection starting March 30, 2020. This will help to avoid disruptions in trash and recycling collection, and keep Republic employees from touching residents’ personal items. Residents who have bulk trash are asked to secure it for later disposal when normal business resumes.

Beware of Scammers
The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is sharing more safety tips during the COVID-19 pandemic to help prevent people falling victim to scams. Now that a stay-home order is in effect, scammers are getting more creative in their approach.

One of the main ways scammers are trying to get money is through phishing emails that are designed to look like they’re sent from a government organization. When a person clicks on the link, malware infects the computer and the only way to remove it is through paying the scammer a fee. If you receive an email that contains links, detectives said one way to protect yourself is to hover your cursor over the link so that it shows the address. If that address looks suspicious or doesn’t link to a .gov website, it’s best not to click it.

If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from a charitable organization soliciting donations, investigators said ask them for their federal employer identification number and contact information so you can hang up and verify its existence first before donating.

If you receive a call or email that is suspicious, you can report it to the National Center for Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721 or email  disaster@leo.gov . You can also report it to the FBI by visiting tips.fbi.gov.
Department of Public Works
To ensure the health and well-being of our employees and residents, the Township Municipal Building and Department of Public Works Administrative Offices will remain closed to the public until further notice. All essential Township operations – including police and public works, will continue functioning. Emergency services will continue.

At this time, due to lower than normal staffing levels and measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, trash and recycling services in certain areas may be delayed. We ask for your patience and cooperation during this time.

If your trash is missed, please leave it curbside. It will be collected. Please contact the Department of Public Works with any questions at publicworks@chtownship.com or (856) 424-4422.
