LIVINGSTON, NJ — Although the Township of Livingston will officially welcome RTS as its new garbage collector on Tuesday, Sept. 1, residents are advised that this change will not cause an interruption in service, and all residential pickups will continue as scheduled.

All residents who want to sign up for or continue back-door or rear-yard pickup services for garbage must contact RTS at or 1-833-RTS-LVTN (1-833-787-5886) to register. These contacts can also be used for general customer service inquiries or to report a missed pickup.

Waste Industries, the township’s previous garbage collector, will continue to serve as Livingston’s recycling collector.
