Residents are advised that shredded documents are no longer permitted in plastic bags. Shredded documents are to be placed directly in your mixed paper recycling bin for collection by the hauler. As previously advised, paper or commingled recycling, that is placed at the curb in plastic bags will no longer be collected by the Borough contractor.
Borough of Madison residents are advised that effective immediately, paper or commingled recycling, that is placed at the curb in plastic bags will no longer be collected by the Borough contractor. This new requirement was imposed by the disposal recycling facility. Acceptable containers are plastic bins, which cannot exceed 40 pounds and are clearly labeled for the respective recycling (commingled recycling or paper recycling). Stickers are available for pickup at the Department of Public Works on John Avenue or the Clerk’s Office at Hartley Dodge Memorial.
Our hauler will not pick up recyclables in plastic bags. The plastic bags and its contents will be left at the curb. If you have any questions, please call the Department of Public Works at (973) 593-3088.
