MAPLEWOOD, NJ — Beginning April 6, 2020 the Township is revising the current recycling schedule from every Monday to every Tuesday. This change is being made in an effort to allow our current contractor sufficient time to reach all the households. We are hopeful this change will result in greater efficiency and more accurate collection. The new collection schedule is as follows (takes effect on April 6, 2020):

Zones 4, 5 and 6 will be picked up on Tuesdays.

We have attached a Collection Zone Map for your review. Pickups for zones 1, 2 and 3 will remain unchanged. The Township appreciates your patience and understanding as we strive to improve your recycling experience.
