[ARCHIVED] No Plastic Bags Allowed in Curbside Recycling

Copy of Copy of Recycling (2)

RECYCLING UPDATE as of April 11, 2023

NO plastic bags are allowed in your recycling loads put out for collection by Giordano, our recycling company. The end accepting company, Waste Management, is cracking down on plastic bags for recycling—they no longer will accept them if they are in the loads. Commingled single-stream materials should be loose in a recycling receptacle, not in plastic bags. 

Recycling crews are being instructed to leave ALL recycling loads at the curb if they are in plastic bags, and they will not return until the next scheduled collection. Thank you for your cooperation!

EARLIER NEWS: Effective January 1, 2023, Giordano will be picking up recycling in Berkeley Heights on Wednesdays and Thursdays instead of Mondays and Tuesdays. New schedule and pickup sections of town below. 

In a nutshell, the "East" side streets will be picked up Wednesday and Thursdays in the same week, while the "West" side streets will be picked up the following Wednesdays and Thursdays. Each "side" gets picked up every other week. Please see the schedule below and take note of the town streets included in each section (list further below). Please note that some streets may have been switched to the other "side" as they were previously.
