(3) White copy of Pumpers Report Form and a copy of the billing invoice are submitted to township office by December 31st.

Call or e-mail the township if you need a Pumpers Report Form or ask your pumper/hauler as some of the pumper/haulers were supplied with forms.

A township property owner may choose any DEP certified pumper hauler of their choice.

For those property owner(s) who pump out their on lot disposal sewage system (septic tank) more frequently than one time every five years and/or the (5) five year pumping cycle is not in the same yearly pumping cycle as prescribed by the township, may continue to do so. Kindly be reminded to forward the white copy of the Pumperís Report Form and a copy of the Pumperís billing receipt/invoice to the township office at least one time every five years, so township records reflect that the last pump out does not go beyond the (5) five year pumping cycle requirement.
