Online Resources Help Keep Pennsauken Residents Informed

Since the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service on Jan. 16 is a holiday, does it affect trash pickup? Who do I talk to about a business that doesn’t maintain their property? Who do I call about a question I have about my upcoming court date? These are just some of the questions residents may have this month. Sometimes, finding the answers are easy. Other times, residents may not know where to go to get the information they need. Fortunately, Pennsauken Township has a variety of online tools available that help residents keep informed.

On The Web

Pennsauken Township’s web site,, has several links that can help point residents in the right direction. At the top of the menu on the left hand side of every page on the Township’s web site, there’s a “What Department Do I Need?” button. From issues about abandoned/vacant properties to zoning questions, you can find the appropriate phone number to get the answers you need by clicking that link.

At the bottom of that same menu, there’s a “Keep Me Informed” button. Clicking that link will take you to an online form to sign up for Pennsauken Township’s eNewsletter. Residents will be e-mailed information about community events, holiday schedule changes, and more.

By clicking on the “Contact Us” button, you’ll find an online form residents can use to reach out to the Clerk’s Office, send an issue about Township roads, contact the Police Department, etc. You’ll also find a link containing specific extensions for Township staff.

The Pennsauken Police also have an anonymous tip form on the web site. Visit and submit your crime tip without giving any personal information. Your message will be sent directly to detectives in the Pennsauken Police Department.

Social Media

Pennsauken Township has a Facebook page that posts information several times throughout the week and responds to questions from residents. Be sure to visit and “Like” the page so that updates show up on your newsfeed. The Township’s Twitter account, @PennsaukenTwp, generally posts information several times each month.

Reverse 9-1-1

The Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission employs a reverse 9-1-1 notification system, which informs customers about water main breaks, hydrant flushing, etc. The Township also uses the system to provide updates on changes to trash and recycling pick up, snow closures, and more. If you haven’t signed up already, visit and complete the form on the page.

So be sure to take advantage of these online resources to get notifications from the Township and stay informed. And for the record, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is not a “trash holiday,” but many do clean-up projects in parks and neighborhoods as part of this day of service. Pennsauken’s Building Department would handle complaints about businesses not maintaining their property. They can be called at (856) 665-1000 x130 or 131. And for questions regarding upcoming court dates, please call the Municipal Court directly at (856) 663-1403 or fax them at (856) 665-8127.
