The City collects household garbage once weekly, up to a maximum of (4) 20-gallon cans per unit. The collection day varies based on where you live. Household Trash Collection Routes Map


Garbage is collected from the rear of the house. Just keep the cans covered and in the same location each week, and provide a clear path for the crew to collect them. Cans must not be placed at the curb. You may call (908) 273-6404 to determine your collection day.

Garbage cans must be watertight metal or plastic cans with tight-fitting lids, and must not weigh more than 75 pounds each.
