Recycling Collection Information

Recycling Schedule*

Zone 1 The Terrace to Baltimore Blvd.: 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month

Zone 2Philadelphia Blvd. to Sea Girt Avenue: 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month


Due to recently imposed State regulations, effective immediately, plastic bags can no longer be accepted nor can they be dumped in the recycling bins at the Borough Yard. If recyclables are conveyed to the yard in a plastic bag, you must dump the recyclables into the bin; the plastic bag should be re-used by the resident or disposed of as trash.

Please use containers no larger than 32-gallon for the disposal of all recyclable material. Any recyclables that are placed in bags cannot be collected.

Pizza boxes are now considered trash due to the presence of food residue. They should be disposed of with household trash.

The Recycling Center is under video surveillance. Fines shall be issued for any illegal dumping.

The Mayor & Council appreciate your cooperation in this effort to comply with the new State Regulations.


(*) All recyclables will be picked up curbside or backyard (resident’s choice) on your designated Wednesday unless otherwise noted in the Holiday Schedule.

If your sanitation, garden trash and/or recycling is not picked up according to the schedule, please contact the Public Works Department at 732.449.6463 or [email protected] the same day before 2:00 PM. When contacting the Public Works Department, please be sure to include your address and telephone number if you leave a message.

Recyclable drop-off bins and sheds for residents’ use, are conveniently located at the Sea Girt Recycling Center, Bell Place.
