ACUA Awarded Five-Year Trash Collection Contract by Buena Borough

Oct 03, 2017

Beginning Tuesday, October 3, the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) will be providing trash collection service to Buena Borough. Waste collection had previously been handled by Gold Medal. Prior to the expiration of their current contract, Buena Borough officials went out to bid for waste collection and disposal service. ACUA was the lowest bidder. 

“The Atlantic County Utilities Authority has always been a great partner,” said Buena Borough Mayor David Zappariello. “I look forward to having ACUA provide this critical service to our residents and anticipate other cost-saving opportunities where we can work together in the very near future,” Mayor Zappariello added.

“We’re really pleased to be providing trash collection service to residents of Buena Borough,” said ACUA President Rick Dovey. “Our staff has a good feel for the town given our long-standing recycling collection relationship. We’re expecting a seamless transition,” Dovey added.

Buena residents should not notice any difference in service given that collection services will continue to happen on the same day for the entire municipality. Trash will continue to be collected every Tuesday, only now the collection will be done by ACUA. Bulk items will continue to be collected on trash days – one bulk item is allowed per home on each trash collection day. Recycling collection will continue every other Friday, with no changes from the current scheduled collections.
