Advice for property owners…
Like all municipalities, Aberdeen Township has rules governing the proper day-to-day maintenance of residential and commercial properties, as well as for improvement projects. Listed below are some of the key regulations property owners should be aware of.
Properties must be maintained in a clean, safe and sanitary condition free from accumulated trash and debris, at all times.
All residences and businesses must have a clearly visible street address number posted on the building. The sign must be at least 3 inches high, half an inch wide and placed so it can be seen from the street.
Sidewalks must remain free of all tripping hazards, including raised or misaligned sidewalks.
Grass and weeds must be maintained at a height of less than 10 inches.
Sidewalks must be free of low-hanging tree or shrub branches and limbs to allow pedestrian travel to a height of 80 inches off the sidewalk.
Trees and shrubs must be trimmed to a height of 16 feet over a roadway to allow passage of emergency, utility and work vehicles.
Garbage cans cannot be placed at the curb before 4 pm the day before pick-up and be removed by 4 pm the following day of pick-up.
Bulk items cannot be placed at the curb until 4 pm the day before your scheduled pickup appointment. To arrange a pickup, call Future Sanitation at (732) 919-3345.
Property Renovations and Improvements
Zoning approval is required for the following items in advance of placement on the property (items with an * may require construction permits after zoning approval):
Fencing (new or replacement)
Sheds (all sizes)* - construction permit required if over 100 sq. ft.
Pools - including blow up, in-ground and above-ground pools, spas, and hot tubs*
Property owners who have completed or are in the process of any of the above projects should advise the Township immediately to obtain proper approvals. Those without approvals could have difficulties obtaining a certificate of occupancy when selling their properties in the future.
Renovation materials from home repair projects cannot be placed at the curb with normal household trash nor with bulk items. Homeowners must make arrangements for a dumpster or have their contractor remove the materials during or at the completion of the job.
Additionally, no contractor or business signs are permitted anywhere in the Township, other than approved in zoning or site plan.
A certificate of occupancy is required for the sale of homes, and rental certificates are required for all rentals.
