To provide a better service to the residents of Gloucester Township, starting February 2021, Gloucester Township will be switching to a new waste disposal company – Central Jersey Waste and Recycling Company – which will now be responsible for trash removal. Please note, that Recycling will still be picked up by Gloucester Township Municipal Utility Authority.

Attention Residents With a Regular Trash Pickup Day on THURSDAY: Starting February 2021 your trash pickup day will now be on FRIDAY. Recycling will follow your normal schedule. Please share this information with your family and friends.

All other residents’ regular trash and recycling days will remain THE SAME.

Tires, only two (2) tires per household with the metal rims removed, will be collected on your weekly trash day. Sinks and Toilets will be picked up at curbside on your weekly trash day.

Please do not hesitate to call Department of Public Works at 856-228-3144 should you have any questions or concerns.

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. Read more about single stream recycling.

How 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 emptied and rinsed with the lids off. Any recycling material left outside recycling cart will not be collected by the automated truck. Any oversized cardboard that cannot be broken down (remove bubble wrap, plastic bags & Styrofoam), call The GTMUA for a scheduled pick-up.

What To Recycle:


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.


Metal containers refer to aluminum, tin or bi-metal food and beverage containers, but do not include: aerosol cans, coat hangers, paint cans, pots, pans or scrap metals.


Plastic containers that only display the plastic class #1, #2, #4, #5 & #7 recycling triangle on them. These cartons/containers could have been used for food, juice, milk, soda, water and laundry detergent, but do not include: anti-freeze or auto oil containers, children’s toys, flower pots, laundry baskets/buckets, microwave food trays, plastic bags, plastic plates or utensils, Styrofoam and vinyl. Plastic shopping bags can be returned to many stores for recycling.


Residential paper refers to newspaper and all of its inserts, catalogs, chipboard (beer & soda cartons), cereal boxes, computer paper, envelopes, gift boxes, greeting cards, junk mail, magazines, non-metallic wrapping paper, office paper, paper toilet/towel rolls, phone books, text books (without hard covers) and work books. 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 and frozen juice cartons, 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 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.

Single-Stream automation questions:

How should I set my cart out for collection?

  • Carts placed on the curb must be no more than 2 feet from the street.
  • Carts placed in street; wheels should be touching the curb with the exception of homes in cul-de-sacs. Residents in cul-de-sacs should place their cart far enough away from the curb so the trucks’ 12 foot automated collection arm can reach.
  • Arrows on the cart lid must be pointing towards street or the cart cannot be collected.
  • Cart must be at least 5 feet away from any obstacles such as mailboxes, trash, utility poles, vehicles, yard waste and other carts.
  • Automated collection requires a 15 foot overhead clearance, keep cart away from low hanging trees and wires.
  • Don’t overload your cart, lid must be fully closed.
  • Carts must always be on level ground (no snow or leaf piles).

Can the recycling cart be returned?

No, it is the law to recycle so residents may not return the cart.

Can I paint my cart or change my cart lid?

No, the carts are Township property and the lid may not be removed.

Can I use a different cart or bucket?

No, only recycling carts issued by the Township may be used.

These hazardous materials cannot be disposed of with your regular trash. The Camden County Division of Environmental Affairs will take your hazardous materials. Please check their website; or call (856) 858-5241 for their 2018 disposal locations and drop-off dates. One will be held in Gloucester Township at Camden County College.
Water based latex paint-only (cleans up with soap & water) can be disposed of in your regular trash once it’s dried out. DO NOT RECYCLE. To achieve the drying out technique; put a strong plastic bag in a cardboard box, then place kitty litter or sand into the plastic bag. Pour the water based paint into the plastic bag. If needed, add more kitty litter or sand. When the paint is dried out, tie the plastic bag and discard into the trash. When the inside of the empty paint can is hardened, you may dispose of it in your regular trash with the lid off.


DO NOT RECYCLE: Use a needle clipper (from pharmacy). After clipping off the needle put in an old coffee can or laundry detergent bottle and seal original lid shut with duct tape. Write on container, “syringes-do not recycle” and throw in trash.


Medication may be disposed of at the Police Station. They have a mail box slot that is to be used to discard unwanted medications.
