Garbage, Recycling Pickup Schedule to Change in Hoboken

The new schedule is expected to save the city $100,000 each year.

A new garbage and recycling schedule will take effect in Hoboken next week.

Starting on Sunday, May 11, garbage will be picked up on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while recycling collection will take place on Mondays and Thursdays.

The new schedule shifts a recycling day from Tuesday to Monday, more evenly spreading out recycling collection. The schedule eliminates the Monday garbage pickup, which was previously the lowest volume day since it immediately followed garbage pickup on Sunday. Collection of electronic waste such as computers and televisions has been expanded to Mondays and Thursdays. The schedule change is expected to save the city $100,000 each year.

A flyer with the updated schedule is available for downloading and printing from the city website: www.hobokennj.org/docs/env/GarbageRecyclingSchedule.pdf.

Garbage and recyclables should be placed curbside in a covered container after 7:30 p.m. (9 p.m. along Washington Street) the day before pickup. Recyclables should not to be put in plastic bags, and no waste should be placed curbside on Tuesdays or Saturdays.

Garbage collection is being eliminated on Tuesdays and single stream recycling is being moved from Tuesdays to Mondays in the limited business area. Garbage pickup will continue on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Paper and cardboard pickup will also continue on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Single stream recycling will take place on Mondays and Thursdays.

Non-metal household furniture and mattresses can be placed on the curb for pickup on Sundays, Wednesdays and Friday evenings. Garden and yard waste as well as metal furniture (file cabinets, desks, bed frames, etc) and appliances can be placed curbside on Thursday evenings.
