TOWNSHIP-WIDE ONE-TIME COLLECTION OF OLD GARBAGE/RECYCLING CANS

Excludes Carts Belonging to Private Haulers (Franklin, Midco, M&S, Republic, Solterra, etc.)

Middletown Public Works will begin a one-time only collection of old plastic garbage and recycling cans, which will be recycled.

NORTH zone – begins Monday, February 5th

SOUTH zone – begins Monday, February 12th

Place your old cans upside down at the curb, stacked if possible, the Sunday night before your zone’s one-time collection date. Cans must be empty.Cans with trash or recycling inside will not be collected. 

Cans will be collected throughout the week. Please leave them curbside until they are collected.

Old cans can also be brought to the Middletown Recycling Center (52 Kanes Lane) Thursdays through Mondays from 8:30AM – 4:30PM.

Private Haulers’ Carts

Private haulers are currently collecting their garbage cans. If your garbage cart has not been picked up yet, please remove it from the curb and place it in a clearly visible location on your property. The Township is not able to recycle carts from private haulers since they are deemed private property. Please contact your private hauler if you have additional questions regarding cart retrieval.

If you have any questions regarding the one-time collection, please call the Garbage & Recycling hotline at 732-615-3233 or email recycling@middletownnj.org.
