2020 Trash and Recycling Services

Automated Trash Collection Program

Dear Residents,

In 2020 our Automated “Single Stream” Recycling Collection Program will move to a four day per week recycling collection service. Having obtained a third collection vehicle affords us the ability to increase recycling collection stops each day, resulting in fewer days required to collect recycling.  Beginning January 6, 2020, our DPW will collect recycling on a four day per week basis, Monday thru Thursday.  Some of our residents will continue to have recycling collection on the same day as in previous years, however, most residents will have trash and recycling collection on the same day. Please click here to find out your street's trash and recycling collection schedule. 

There will be no trash and recycling collection on holidays; please refer to the holiday list below. Trash and recycling collection that falls on a holiday will be collected the following day. Each subsequent collection day will be pushed to the following day for the work week. For example, Martin Luther King’s birthday is observed on Monday, January 20, 2020.  Monday’s trash and recycling have been rescheduled to Tuesday, and Tuesday’s to Wednesday, and so forth for the remainder of the week.

In the event of inclement weather, such as snow, ice storms, and hurricanes, the same schedule used for a Holiday will apply.  If trash and/ or recycling services are suspended due to weather, your trash and/ or recycling collection will be the next day, i.e., a snow storm forces us to suspend trash collection on a Monday; Monday’s trash and recycling will be collected on Tuesday, and Tuesday’s to Wednesday, and so forth for the remainder of the week.

The “Large Item Collection” (furniture, mattresses, rugs, etc.) and “Large Metal and Appliance Collection” (refrigerators, stoves, etc.) for calendar year 2020 will be on a once a month basis, except for the month of November.  In November, our crews will be dedicated to the Leaf Collection Program.  Residents will be required to notify Public Works at 973-326-7398 or submit an online request to schedule a Large Item or Metal and Appliance pick up.  Refer to the Municipal Calendar online or hard copy Municipal Calendar mailed annually for the designated collection week for each month. 

For all questions and concerns, please call the Department of Public Works at 973-326-7398 or visit for announcements and updates, and sign up for our Municipal Messenger.

Sincerely, Thomas Eschmann, Department of Public Works Superintendent
