If you need an additional 96-gallon recycling cart the fee is $35.00 which is only available through the GTMUA. All recycling carts are the property of Gloucester Township and must be left at your house if you move. Recycling carts used for any other purpose other than recyclable materials will be confiscated.

HOW TO RECYCLE
Use your cart space wisely, compress and flatten recyclables to maximize cart space. All recyclable material must fit in cart with the lid closed in order to be picked up; any recycling material left outside the recycling cart will not be collected. Any oversized cardboard that cannot be broken down, call GTMUA for a scheduled pickup. Township issued carts only, will be collected every other week at curb side. The newly supplied 96-gallon recycling cart is for glass, metal, plastic recyclables and all residential paper (No plastic trash bags). All containers should be empty and rinsed. All residents are reminded that recycling is mandatory statewide. By removing recyclable from the regular trash flow, we help save our environment and save tax dollars that would otherwise be spent on trash disposal fees. See the list below.
