Safe Care Cam


An Initiative to Protect Your Loved Ones Receiving Care

On December 22, 2016, Attorney General Christopher Porrino and the Division of Consumer Affairs announced a new program designed to ensure that New Jersey residents who suspect their loved ones are being abused, mistreated, or neglected by unscrupulous home health care providers can have access to micro-surveillance cameras that can be easily hidden to detect abuse and protect patients. The "Safe Care Cam"  Program makes these cameras available for free 30-day loans. To participate in the program, please follow these simple steps:

1.  Call the Division of Consumer Affairs at either (973) 504-6375  or (800) 242-5846. Follow voice prompts to a "Safe Care Cam"  Program voicemail box and leave a message with your name and contact information.

2.  A staff member will contact anyone who leaves a voicemail with further information about the program and to schedule an appointment to pick-up a camera at either the Division's Newark or Cherry Hill office, depending on what is more convenient to the program participant.

3.  At this appointment, the program participant will be required to do the following:

*                Provide a copy of a driver's license or other official identification.

*                Provide contact information, including phone number, cell phone number, and address.

*                Sign a program contract, which sets forth the rules and obligations under the "Safe Care Cam"  Program.

4.  Additionally, at this appointment, a staff member will provide the program participant with a camera and an accompanying memory card. A brief training will be provided on how the camera works and how footage can be recorded, viewed, and saved.

5.  The camera and memory card will be on loan for 30 days. Upon request, this loan can be extended for a longer period of time.



Trash Collection Update

Please tell your Friends and Neighbors:
Standard trash collection contracts use 32 gallon containers as the standard.  Please consider this when buying new garbage containers.  From our website:

Do's and Don'ts of Solid Waste Collection:

  • Household trash is collected once per week. The collection schedule consists of one collection route on Mondays September through May, and Monday and Thursday for June, July, and August.
  • Residents should use metal or plastic containers with lids. Plastic containers with locking lids are preferable to prevent blowing litter and animals from getting into the refuse.
  • The containers should be no larger than 32 gallons and weigh no more than 40 pounds to avoid injury to the sanitation workers.
  • Containers should be at the curbside prior to 6:00am each collection day.

Contact DEP For Odor Complaints

Residents of Bordentown Township who experience landfill and/or industrial odors in their neighborhood should contact the NJDEP hotline by calling 1-877-927-6337 to report the odors.

If you suspect the odors are coming from the nearby landfills in Pennsylvania, please be sure to also report the odors to the Pennsylvania DEP by calling 1-484-250-5991 during normal business hours or by calling 1-484-250-5900 after hours and weekends.  Residents can also submit an online report to the PADEP by clicking this link:


Reporting odors to the NJDEP and PADEP will help the township with documenting the incidents to the authorities that can lend assistance to resolve the problems. Calling the hotline numbers is very important because it will force corrective action.

In addition to reporting the odors to the two state agencies listed above, residents may also wish to consider reporting a landfill odor to Waste Management directly by calling 609-499-0500.  This number is direct to Waste Management.  By calling this line, your complaint should initiate a quicker response from their staff in order to investigate and correct whatever situation may be causing the odors.
