Recycling

All residents are reminded that recycling is indeed the law, both statewide and locally. But the benefits of recycling should also be seriously considered. By removing recyclables from the regular trash flow, we help save our environment. And each ton of trash that is recycled helps to save tax dollars that would otherwise be spent on trash disposal fees. Read more about single stream recycling.

How to Recycle

Recycling carts are collected every other week at curb side. Use your cart space wisely, compress and flatten recyclables to maximize cart space. Cardboard must be broken down and placed vertically in cart or the cart may not entirely empty. All recyclable material must fit in cart with the lid closed in order to be picked up. All containers should be empty and rinsed. Any recycling material left outside recycling cart will not be collected by the automated truck. Any oversized cardboard that cannot be broken down, call the GTMUA for a scheduled pick-up. Your trash and recyclables must be put out no earlier than 4:00 pm the day prior to collection day, but no later that 5:00 am on the collection day.

Recycling Containers

Residential properties that need an additional 96-gallon recycling cart are available for $35.00. Multi-family dwellings are entitled to an additional cart at no charge. Carts are only available through the GTMUA. All 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 recycling, will be confiscated. Please, do not put any markings on your cart as it is Township property; each cart has an identification number and a RFID tag that corresponds with your address. Your old yellow recycling buckets may be used for brush/yard debris or grass/leaves pick-up. Residents may also drop them off at the GTMUA or Public Works Department.
