Items may be brought to our facility when we are open.  We ask that any items that fit into a car be brought to us.  Items that require a truck will be scheduled, however we have limited internal ability so we work with local movers and clean out services.  A pick-up fee of at least $50 or more will be charged depending on size of the load.  The $50 fee covers one pick up of up to five pieces of furniture with each additional piece costing $5.  For limited use items such as pianos, hospital beds, etc., we will pick up these items only when a need is identified.

  • Union County pickups are typically on Wednesdays. 
  • If you require pickup specifically in Bernards Township only, please call (908) 766-9748.
