Both trash and recycling should be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. or the evening before in a standard 32-gallon container. The container should not weigh more than 50 lbs. when container is filled. The resident is responsible for purchasing their own receptacle.
Picked up on the second garbage day in lieu of one can of trash. Items such as a sofa, a dresser, a mattress, etc. will be picked up on the second trash day only. Construction debris (tile, sheetrock, fence posts, railroad ties, etc.) will not be picked up with trash.
Picked up on Wednesdays on a call-in basis only. Lawnmowers, washing machines, dryers, etc. will be picked up by the contractor but the resident must call (973) 697-1500 to get on the pick-up list. Metals items with Freon/CFCs in them (refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers) will also be picked up provided the Freon has been removed by a certified professional.
