Waste Disposal Guidelines

ousehold Garbage is to placed in the designated Green Dumpsters 

Recyclables are to be placed in the designated Blue Dumpsters

Residents must follow town recycling guidelines which are based upon Single Stream Recycling.  Specific items that may be recycled in these dumpsters and specific exceptions are detailed in the Township guidelines and the Regal Point "Trash Overview".

Please do your best to throw your trash bags to the rear of the large refuse dumpsters - this uses the space more efficiently and will prevent overflow.

Please keep all of the dumpster lids closed - light items fly out in the wind and the odors can get pretty intense.

Break down and flatten cardboard boxes before placing in the recycling dumpsters.


Large items that will not fit in the regular dumpsters are to be placed in the bulk area. These will be picked up automatically on Thursdays except . . .

* If you discard an old appliance (stove, water heater, refrigerator, washer, dryer, etc.), you need to call for an appointment - 732-329-4000, ext. 7260.

* Mattresses and box springs must be bagged or they will not be picked up.  Bags for this purpose are available at the major hardware stores. 

* Carpet, lumber and other building materials must be cut to 4’ lengths, taped or bundled before placing in bulk area.

* Discarded Christmas trees (un-bagged) should be put in the bulk area - they’re picked up from January 2 through the second full week of January.
