Good News! Your extra recycling cart should be delivered between Sept. 4th and Sept. 10th.
To facilitate delivery, please make sure that your house number is visible from the street.
Tuesday, September 9th is your first single stream recycling collection.
On September 9TH, TRY TO put all your recyclables (paper, flattened cardboard, bottles and cans) into your existing blue cart.
Until your extra cart is delivered, please:
Fill your blue cart FIRST, then place any overflow in your round buckets, until the extra cart arrives.
Once your extra cart is delivered, stop using your round recycling buckets (that previously held your bottles and cans).
And remember – No TRASH or plastic bags!
What to do with your old round buckets:
You can drop them off at:
Township Garage, Commonwealth Drive, Mon-Fri – 7:30 to 1pm.
County Resource Recovery Complex, 22,000 Columbus Road in Mansfield, Saturdays 7 am – 2 pm.
DO NOT USE OLD RECYCLING BUCKETS AS TRASH CONTAINERS – THEY WILL NOT BE SERVICED
Important Single Stream Tips:
Recycling will continue to be every other week, please refer to the curbside collection schedule at http://www.co.burlington.nj.us/DocumentCenter/View/1797
We will be testing new recycling routes to adjust to single stream collection over the next few months.
As a result, we cannot predict what time of day the recycling truck will pass through your neighborhood.
To ensure your recycling is collected, you must have CARTS CURBSIDE BY 6AM.
To keep your cart lids from breaking, make sure to set your cart with the metal bar facing the street.
Leave 3 feet between your carts and mailboxes, basketball nets, trees, cars, etc.
NEVER PUT PLASTIC BAGS IN YOUR RECYCLING
If you can’t fit all recyclables into your cart, flatten cardboard and set it next to the carts or take it to your municipal dropoff.
