Hoboken Distributes 700 Trash Containers; Continues Tomorrow

The information presented in this article derives from local.nixle.com

Hoboken, NJ – In an effort to curb rodent activity, the City of Hoboken has successfully distributed 700 lidded trash containers to residents. This initiative aligns with the updated ordinance requiring trash to be placed at the curb in sealed containers.

The distribution for today concluded as the demand surpassed the daily supply.

Here’s the upcoming distribution schedule:

  • Sept. 26: 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Multi-Service Center hockey rink, Adams Street (between First & Second Streets).
  • Sept. 28: 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. at 13th & Jefferson Streets.
  • Sept. 30: 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the former Union Dry Dock, 901 Sinatra Dr.

For agents managing multiple properties and needing over six containers, the pick-up location is Union Dry Dock on Sept. 30. They must present their management contract.

Each address is eligible for up to three containers. Residents should bring residency proof, such as a utility bill, lease, or license.

If you already own a sealed container, there’s no need for a new one. This ordinance doesn’t affect recycling or bulk/furniture pickups.

Larger properties with space issues should use rodent-repellent garbage bags of at least 1.1 mils thick. Without repellent, bags should be 3 mils thick. Such trash should be stored indoors between collections.

Smaller properties (10 or fewer units) with space limitations can apply for a 1-year exemption here.

The grace period for container compliance has been extended to Oct. 8. Non-compliant properties post this date may face fines.
