[Adopted 2-26-1979 by Ord. No. 79-5]
The territory or area contained within the limits of the Township of Pennsauken be and is hereby set off, created and established as Garbage Collection District No. 1.
Collection shall be performed in the manner set forth under N.J.S.A. 40:152-1 et seq.[1] and in accordance with the Township Code and any trash collection contract in effect. The Township Manager shall have the authority for the implementation of that collection and to make such rules and regulations as are necessary for such efficient collection.
Editor's Note: N.J.S.A. 40:152-1 et seq. was repealed by L. 1989, c. 157. However, Chapter 54 of the Laws of 1991 reauthorized the creation of garbage districts for municipalities having garbage districts prior to the effective date of L. 1989, c. 157 (January 1, 1990).
There shall be raised, by levying and collection, at the same time and in the same manner as other Township taxes, within the limits of said Garbage Collection District No. 1, sufficient moneys to provide for the payment of the costs of removing and disposing of the garbage, refuse, trash and other refuse matter from said district. The Tax Collector of the Township of Pennsauken shall pay said sum to the Township Treasurer, and said sum so raised and collected shall be applied to the purpose for which it is raised.
All moneys assessed and levied as aforesaid shall be a lien upon the lands and premises against which they shall be assessed, in the same manner that taxes are made a lien against lands in the Township of Pennsauken, and the payment thereof shall be enforced within the same time and the same manner and by the same proceeding as the payment of taxes is enforced in the Township of Pennsauken, as provided by statute.
The cost of collecting, removing and disposing of garbage, trash and refuse shall be raised by assessing and levying all properties and buildings within the Township of Pennsauken.
