Mountains of household waste, like this one seen on Bridge Avenue in 2011, may become less common in Red Bank soon.
The borough council, having privatized regular trash pickup two months ago, is now considering a change under which contractor DeLisa Demolition of Tinton Falls would pick up bulk waste on the second collection day of each week, all year long, rather than once a month between April and November.
Officials expect to introduce an ordinance amendment enabling a change to the contract with DeLisa at council meeting scheduled for Monday, November 23. The change won’t increase the borough’s costs, said Administrator Stanley Sickels. “It’s more convenient for residents, and less unsightly,” he said. (Photo by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
