Recycling Guidelines

North Brunswick Township has contracted with Waste Management to perform the curbside recycling collection.   Waste Management processes recycling using a "single stream" program.  This means that residents can put all their recycling together in the container.  Residents are free to continue to separate their recycling if they chose to do so.  For more information about Waste Management's Single Stream Recycling processes, please visit www.wm.com

 

Each Household receives one round and one rectangular recycling container.

You can use any style container, including old garbage cans, for recyclables.
There are four major components to curbside recycling:
