Garbage and Recycling   

 Residential Waste Collection & Disposal    

Curbside collection is provided twice a week. Bulk waste—furniture, appliances, etc -- is also collected during these pickups. Please call the Department of Public Works at 201-547-4400 to schedule a bulk waste pick up.  


Mixed newspaper, magazines, junk mail, officer paper, telephone books, cardboard boxes, corrugated boxes, and laundry detergent boxes must be recycled. These materials must be tied or placed in recycling containers and placed curbside no earlier than 7:00 PM the night before your scheduled collection day. 

The Jersey City Department of Public Works (JCDPW) also provides for a drop-off center, where residents can dispose of tires and other debris as deemed necessary by JCDPW. 

 Drop-off Center  

Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM 

13-15 Linden Ave East 

Jersey City, NJ 07305   

Co-mingled materials must be placed curbside in a recycling container no earlier than 7:00 PM the night before your scheduled collection day. Co-mingled materials include glass bottles, aluminum cans, metal cans, milk cartons, drink boxes, water containers, food containers, household cleaner containers, laundry detergent bottles, shampoo bottles, and other related plastic containers. 

 PLEASE DO NOT PLACE RECYCABLES IN PLASTIC BAGS. Plastic bags require a different collection system and processing equipment than our curbside recycling program. Recycle your bags at a local ShopRite or Target.
