The municipality may also provide for the curbside collection of solid waste along such streets, or for the reimbursement of such solid waste collection costs as the municipality may determine to have been reasonably incurred by persons residing adjacent to such streets. Roads or streets so serviced, which are not shown on the official map of the municipality, may, at the option of the governing body of said municipality, be suitably improved in accordance with any requirements established pursuant to article 5 of the "Municipal Land Use Law," P.L.1975, c.291, ss. 23-27 (C.40:55D-32 to C.40:55D-36) and the ordinance.
