RECYCLING IS THE LAW
All residents are reminded that recycling is mandatory statewide. By removing recyclables from the regular trash flow, we help save our environment and save tax dollars that would otherwise be spent on trash disposal fees.
HOW TO RECYCLE, WHAT 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 so that the cart will empty properly. All recyclable material must fit in cart with the lid closed in order to be picked up. All containers should be empty and rinsed with the lids off. Any recycling material left outside of the recycling cart will not be collected by the automated truck. Any oversized cardboard that cannot be broken down (remove styrofoam and plastic bags), call the GTMUA at 856-227-5665 to schedule a pick-up.
Glass containers that were previously used for food or beverages. The containers may be clear, brown, or green glass, but do not include: auto glass, ceramics, drinking glasses, window glass, mirrors and light bulbs.

Also, all types of flattened/cut down corrugated cardboard (so cart will completely empty) that are not waxed or coated are recyclable. Do not include: foil or wax coated cardboard (ice cream containers, frozen juice cartons and frozen dinner boxes), napkins, paper cups, plates, shredded paper, tissues and towels. Please note: shredded paper is NO longer accepted by the recycling facility. It can be used in your compost pile or thrown out with your household trash.
Multi-family properties that need an additional 96-gallon recycling cart should call the GTMUA at 856-227-5665. 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 which will correspond 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 if no longer needed.

If needed, add more kitty litter or sand. When the paint is dry, tie the plastic bag and discard into the trash. When the inside of the empty paint can has hardened, you may now dispose of it in the regular trash with the lid off.
