Recycling Collection

 How Can You Recycle?

The Township provides a curbside recycling collection program for basic recyclable items (single stream containers, newspaper, magazines, mixed paper and corrugated cardboard). The curbside recycling program is a simple and efficient way residents can properly dispose of recyclables. Recyclables must be placed at your curbside in appropriate recycling containers prior to 6:00 A.M. on your recycling days.  Large cardboard is placed next to container.Drop-Off Centers for Edison residents for all the basic recyclables included in the curbside recycling collection program:
471 Medow Road, Hours: Monday to Friday-7:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M-Closed Holidays
Minnie B. Veal-1070 Grove Avenue-Hours: 8:30 A.M-4:00 P.M.-Closed Holidays

**Security camersas on location for your safety

Please do not leave any items outside the gate when the Recycling Drop-Off Center is closed.  This is a violation of Township Ordinance.

How To Determine your Recycling Section?

The Township is divided into 10 Recycling Sections (RS). Materials for recycling are collected every other week (bi-weekly). Refer to page 9 for your Recycling Section and Recycling Collection Day. The specific dates for each recycling section are shown on the Month-by-Month Calendar starting on page 10. Multi-family residences have centralized recycling areas from which recyclables are collected bi- weekly. Contact your Management office for recyclable days and centralized area locations.
