Any residents with recycling concerns should call (973) 762-8120 x3300 and leave a message. All messages are automatically forwarded via email to DPW Administration, who will be checking them and responding throughout the day.

Starting in January 2023, recycling materials will need to be separated into two categories for two distinct pickups on alternating weeks. One week’s pickup will be exclusively for Fibers (cardboard, paper) and the following week’s pickup will be for Commingled (plastic, glass, and metal containers). Cross-contaminated recycling loads or materials put out on the wrong week will not be picked up. For more information on what materials can and cannot be recycled, please reference the FAQ section at the bottom of this page. To download a copy of the recycling guide, click here.
