Jersey City offers residents curbside trash pick up twice a week and recycling pickup once a week.
Jersey City residents must separate curbside recycling into two bins: one for plastic, glass, and aluminum, and one for mixed paper.
Please do NOT put your recycling into plastic bags. Place your recycling directly into the bins.
We can reduce our waste and energy consumption by recycling.
Not sure how to recycle an item?
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the Jersey City Division of Sanitation is pleased to announce Recycle Coach, a new statewide platform that promotes recycling education and awareness. Jersey City residents will be able to set personalized reminders on collection days and search how to properly dispose of items.*
This app will be available on all Apple, Android, and Google Home and Alexa home products and will send notifications to residents with many features to help us reduce waste and recycle more.
*Jersey City does not currently recycle coffee paper cups, juice boxes, milk cartons, or other tetra paks.
Please note that Jersey City collects recycling and trash on ALL holidays unless stated otherwise. Recycle Coach may state that there is no recycling and trash collection on holidays (red flag icon on the calendar) which is NOT correct.
