Curbside recycling collection will occur on Wednesday, July 4th for the North Zone! (Recycling Center will be closed.)

Recycling turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources.  Recycling is easy and can make a big difference for our community.

Curbside Collection:

Collection is every other Wednesday for each Zone.  Please check the calendar for next collection day.  

All recycling must be inside of the Township-provided blue carts for collection.  Anything outside of the carts will not be collected.

Recycling materials are collected curbside in a single stream process (glass, cans, cardboard, newspaper together and loose in the same cart, etc.). Recycling in plastic bags WILL NOT be collected.  Violators may be fined. Please rinse your recyclables and remove caps.  They can be discarded in the garbage.

Cardboard is a recyclable item, it is not considered bulk, regardless of size.  It must be broken down and inside the blue cart for collection.  Shredded paper is no longer recyclable unless you attend a shredding event by Monmouth County.  Please dispose of shredded paper in the garbage.

Carts must have 4 feet of clearance (from mailboxes, basketball hoops, additional Township carts, vehicles, etc.) on all sides as the garbage truck uses a mechanical arm, otherwise it may not be collected.  Mailboxes, basketball hoops, etc. that extend into the roadway are the responsibility of the resident, if damaged during collection.

Recycling will not be collected on New Years day, Thanksgiving day and Christmas day.  Should your recycling day fall on one of these, it will be collected on the following Saturday.
