FAQs - Public Works

To expedite the process of having a street light maintained, residents are asked to contact the electric utility company who supplies power in that area. The electric utility companies are responsible for and maintain the street lights throughout most of the town. To determine the correct electric utility company that needs to be contacted, it is the same electric utility company that supplies power for the residential and commercial properties in the area of the light that is out. For example, if the light is out on your street, contact the utility company that supplies electric power to your home. Evesham has two suppliers, PSE&G and Atlantic City Electric.

Please use the links below to contact the correct utility company for maintenance on street lights. It will be helpful to have a nearby street address and the closest intersecting street available when reporting. It is also important to have the pole number when reporting. The pole number will be stated on a metal tag that is fastened to the pole.

In January of 2012, in an effort to improve efficiency and maximize resources, the Township restructured monthly bulk trash collection and moved to a quarterly bulk trash collection schedule. During the first week of January, April, July and October, the Public Works Department will send out 4 trucks through each neighborhood to pick up items that are too large to be removed as part of the automated trash collection process. Our goal with this change is to maximize the value of the labor hours and fuel usage.  The value occurs for the taxpayers when an item is being removed, not when we are spending resources driving to the next item to collect.  By moving to quarterly collections, the Township will eliminate a great deal of waste associated with traveling Township streets where no bulk items have been left for removal.  The resources we save will be reinvested to improve the quality of other Public Works core functions such as leaf collection, maintenance of roads, and drainage facilities.

To accommodate those residents who wish to dispose of bulk trash in addition to the quarterly collection period, the Township now offers a special request bulk collection service. Beginning on April 16 2012, the Department of Public Works will begin providing a special request or an as needed collection service of bulk trash for the residents of Evesham. Starting that date, residents who have a need for a bulk trash collection at a time outside of the regularly scheduled collection dates can contact the Public Works Department to take advantage of this service. This is a fee based service with a minimal service charge of $40.00 for each requested collection. To schedule collection, residents may simply contact Public Works during normal business hours at 856-983-2798 ext. 10. To expedite the scheduling process and provide residents with additional payment options online payment is also available. Once payment has been received by the Public Works Department, the collection will be scheduled to be completed within five (5) working days. For additional information about this new expanded program, please contact the Evesham Public Works Department at 856-983-2798 ext. 10.

There are many ways you can keep your streets and sidewalks safe and clear during snow removal by following these steps:

  • Once a street has been plowed, do not shovel or use a snow blower to place snow back on the street. This is a major safety hazard, and is prohibited by our Township Ordinance. When shoveling or removing snow from your driveway or walk, place the snow off onto the adjacent yard or plant strip. 
  • When it starts to snow, park your vehicle off the street. This protects the car from being splashed with slush and salt, and prevents the car from being plowed in. 
  • Check that your mailbox and post are in good repair and that they are behind the curb, not leaning out over the street. 
  • If there is a fire hydrant in front of your home, please try to clear the snow around the hydrant. It is there for your protection and that of your neighbors. 
  • Please remove portable basketball hoops from the street right of way. If they are left in an area where they can be damaged by our snow removal operations, we will not be responsible for any damage. 

 

Although crews do not place snow in front of driveways on purpose, there is no practical way for the snow plow operator to cut off the window of snow when crossing a driveway. This problem is especially acute in cul-de-sacs because of the confined space. Cul-de-sacs require that all of the snow that is on the roadway within that confined space be placed along the outside of the circle. The problem is compounded by the fact that each homeowner then must clear their driveway, which places large piles on the corners of the drives. 

 

One thing you can do to reduce the amount of snow that is plowed in front of your driveway is to place as much of the snow as possible to the right side of your drive, as you face the street. This reduces the chance of snow previously removed from the driveway being pushed back onto your drive. This suggestion, may not work in cul-de-sacs that have driveway openings placed close together.
