- Residents wanting our crews to return to collect “missed” material, must call town hall at (908) 852-9333 before 10:00 a.m. on the morning following collection day. Before a cut-off time existed, crews had been returning to towns, several times in one week for one or two calls, which was very inefficient. Residents who call after 10:00 a.m. will have their material collected on the next regularly scheduled collection day

• Label Containers
. Please use identifying labels (e.g., trash only, recyclables only), especially when lids are placed on the containers.
• Container Weight
. All containers must have handles and should weigh no more than 50 lbs when full.
• Recyclables must be placed at the curb the night before collection.
To minimize the number of missed pick-ups placing the materials out the night before, residents ensure the materials will be at curbside when the truck arrives.
