The primary concern of the Code Enforcement Office is maintaining a safe and clean environment in Berkeley Township.

The Code Enforcement Office would like to remind residents about a few things that are helpful in maintaining a safe and clean environment in Berkeley Township:

  • It is required that all homes and businesses have their street numbers displayed in a manner that will aid emergency personnel in the event of an emergency situation.
  • Remember to annually check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • A reminder that garbage, recyclables and bulk items should not be placed outside for pick-up until 4:00 pm the day prior to the scheduled pick-up date. Also, Ordinance 35-89:23, membrane structures (portable structures) cannot be left on the property any longer than 72 hours and cannot be used for habitation or storage.

A Certificate of Occupancy (CO) is required when anyone is selling or renting a home.
