Changes to the Annual Special Bulk Waste Collection & Curbside Pick-Up Program

DPW Bulk Pick-Up_Program 2019

We’ve updated the annual Spring Clean-Up & Bulk Waste curbside collection program – instead of the complicated pick-up schedule that ran from April through June, we’re now offering every residential household a ONE-TIME PER YEAR FREE BULK WASTE PICK-UP.  The new bulk waste collection system is more convenient for resident homeowners and allows the Department of Public Works to better manage bulk waste collection.  Bulk waste items that will be collected at the scheduled curbside pick-up include: Furniture, Mattresses, Carpeting, Appliances, Electronics (computers, TV’s, etc.) and Mixed Metals.  NO Concrete, asphalt, brick, block or stone, hazardous waste, tires, paint or chemicals will be accepted.  

HOW TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE BULK WASTE PICK-UP

Call the Department of Public Works Sanitation Office at: 732-738-1311 x3600 or the Office of Recycling at: 732-738-1311 x3035.  Visit the MyWaste APP or the Township Web Page: www.twp.woodbridge.nj.us for information about the revised residential bulk waste pick-up service.  The staff will explain the program and get you on the schedule!!! 

Single Stream Recycling is Successful!!!

Thank You For Recycling_2019

The WB News is sending a special Shout-Out to all Township residents!!!  Thanks to you, our Single Stream Recycling Program is working!!!   Single Stream recycling – putting all recyclables (plastic, glass, bottles and cans, cardboard, mixed paper) in the same container - eliminates the need to separate and/or bundle and substantially increases the amount of household waste that we recycle.  Recycling is a great deal for every Woodbridge Township resident, homeowner and business.  And, recycling is not only profitable… it’s the right thing to do for our environment.  As a result of our increasingly successful recycling program, the Mayor’s Office received a Recycling Tonnage grant totaling $147,187.00 and a Clean Communities grant of $163,272 from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
