As a business entity, am I eligible to participate in the curbside recycling program?
Small Business Recycling Program:
Small businesses are eligible to participate in the curbside recycling program if they meet the following criteria. Businesses must place no more than 4 recycling buckets (either green or yellow) and 15 units of corrugated cardboard out for collection on each scheduled recycling day. Businesses who have more than 4 but less than 10 buckets (either type) on any scheduled recycling day can participate in the program for a fee of $150 per year. Please contact the MCIA recycling office at (609) 278-8086 for information and stickers.
For businesses who exceed this, they must obtain a private contract with a recycling disposal company.
Commercial and institutional establishments who are NOT eligible for the small business program are required to make their own arrangements for recycling. Contact a waste hauler for information on what recycling services the company can provide. Please be sure that the hauler provides documentation on the amount of materials collected for recycling. Municipalities must provide tonnage information to the State of New Jersey each year. Information on recycling by commercial establishments must be included. For more information, contact Recycling Department at (609) 278-8086 or the Hamstat Call Center at 609-586-0311.
