In 2015, the Borough of Highland Park began automated garbage collection in the Borough’s Triangle section. When the town had to replace an old garbage truck, we updated the fleet with a one-armed, automated truck, providing us with a more efficient, cost-effective form of collection.
Triangle residents affected by this new form of garbage collection have been notified and have received a new bin, free of charge, that is compatible with the new truck.
Currently, automated collection is taking place only in identified areas within the Borough’s Triangle section. Other parts of town – the Northside, Southside and Central Business District – will be notified of any changes in the future.
