Toms River Township only allows one extra collection per month, per residency. There are two types of extra pickups that can be scheduled - Metal and Extra Collections (non-metal). Items that cannot be picked up curbside but must be brought to the Recycling Convenience Center include but are not limited to electronics (computers, monitors, and TVs), tires (off rim), paints, rigid plastics (playground equipment, slides, sand boxes, swings, pools), children's ride-on toys (big wheels), lawn furniture, buckets, pails, milk/soda crates, baskets, totes, drums, tubs, large flower pots, pet carriers, pallets, coolers, garbage cans, PET blister packs 5 gal. water bottles, empty propane tanks, motor oil, and batteries.

Remember, we do not pickup move outs or an excessive volume. If you have a large amount of debris, please contact a private removal service.

To request a pickup, call 732-255-1000 ext. 8604 and following the instructions. Leave your address and a brief description of the items you need to dispose.

The Township will not provide curbside pickup of construction/demolition debris. Residents will be permitted to bring not more than two 35-gallon containers of construction/demolition debris to the Recycling Convenience Center two times per month. This debris must be placed in containers so that the quantity of material can be readily identified by the yard attendants. If such debris is not containerized, it will not be accepted. Should you have larger quantities of construction/demolition debris to dispose of, it must be brought to an approved landfill such as the Ocean County Landfill on State Highway 70 in Manchester Township by the resident, contractor, or licensed trash hauling company.

Examples: Washers, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, wrought iron railings, grills, bathtubs, metal poles, folding chairs, bikes, hot water heaters, metal tanks, etc. Newer dishwashers that are made of plastic are picked up as non-metal/extra collection.

Extra Collections (non-metal):  Definition: This is for pickups that are not primarily metal and do not fit into the Robo can. (If you live in an area of town that does not have the Robo cans, you can just put items out for your regular weekly collection; you do not need an extra collection.) Examples are furniture, carpet, mattresses, etc. Remember carpet must be cut into four-foot strips, rolled and tied/bundled in some manner and weigh no more than 50 lbs. each. Furniture does not have to be cut up.
