What Can I Recycle?

You may find it surprising just how much waste can be recycled in New Jersey. If a type of waste item is not collected in your curbside recycling collection boxes it can often be taken to the local municipal recycling center and placed in one of their collection bins.

The private sector is also getting involved with both small and large retailers having recycling collection points in their stores. Additionally, many new businesses are being created by ingenious entrepreneurs that have found new ways to make use of the items that would otherwise be thrown away.

We have tried to collate together all of the various recycling schemes into one simple to use website. Simply click on the images below for information on how to reuse or recycle each type of waste.
