Mayor Scirrotto and the Township Committee have made a crusade against littering a priority in the Township. The Township recently installed new road signs that state” TAKE PRIDE, this is MANTUA TOWNSHIP”, in hopes that the local residents and even those who travel throughout the town will think twice about throwing trash on the side of the roads. The police department will be enforcing the littering laws under a zero tolerance policy and we ask all of our residents to join us in our efforts to keep Mantua a cleaner place to live.

Report a Street or Area Light Outage
Atlantic City Electric services more than 80,000 street lights throughout South Jersey. We believe street and area lights are an important community safety feature. We thank you for taking the time to make us aware of problems that may include lights that are out, flickering or that have been damaged. Specific information that you can provide regarding
the location, address, pole number of the light will help our field personnel make repairs.
Report the street light outage.
- For Atlantic City Electric lights, click here to report the outage online or call 1-800-642-3780.
- For all other lights, contact the lights’ owner to report the outage.
If you discover a downed street light pole, exposed electrical wires or any other hazardous situation on our system, please call Atlantic City Electric at 1-800-833-7476 immediately with information that includes the closest address, intersection or landmark:
Reporting Non-Emergency Street Light Outages
While Atlantic City Electric installs and maintains most of the streetlights
you see, there are other customers, municipalities and state highway
departments that are also responsible for some lights.
- Exceptions include outdoor lights owned and maintained by municipalities, private businesses, and others. Other examples of non-Atlantic City Electric lights include indoor lights and lights attached to buildings; and lights hanging directly from wires without brackets. Atlantic City Electric does not service any of these lights.
Light Repair Response Time
Atlantic City Electric typically responds to non-hazardous street and area “light out” calls within five business days of notification. In some instances, the actual repairs may take up to 30 days. Longer repair periods might be due to damage to underground wiring, the need to special order parts or if the entire pole and fixture must be replaced. Streetlight repairs may also be delayed during storms or significant weather events. Our field personnel and customer service representatives concentrate on restoring electric service as a priority during significant weather events. If the repairs have not been completed within 30 days, please notify us at 1-800-642-3780
Bulk Trash is residential household waste. This refers to waste that is generated by the residents of the household. This DOES NOT include the structure and/or the outside structure, storm damage, remodeling or ANY construction debris. Old furniture may be placed at the curb with your trash on bulk week. If you are disposing of white goods, such as a refrigerator, air conditioner, washer, or dryer or light iron, please call the department, 856-468-1502, for pickup. Doors must be removed from appliances before they are placed at the curb. If possible, please ask the delivery firm that brings the new unit to take away the old unit, which is more cost-effective to the township.
In an effort to better communicate with the residents of Mantua Township, the Police Department has started using a communications system that allows residents to receive information ranging from critical alerts to community news. The system is called Nixle, and it allows residents to decide how they receive this information – by text, email, over the internet, or by mobile application. It enables the Police Department to provide timely information to residents so that they can better react to occurrences such as severe weather warnings, evacuation orders, school alerts, and other critical information. In addition, the Department can also relay other community related information such as police blotters, crime prevention tips, traffic closures, community updates, and much more. Please visit www.nixle.com for more details or to sign up. It is a free service.
