This calendar is designed to help residents be current on all the services available from Public Works.
Regular weekly garbage collections are not indicated; however, holiday weeks resulting in a garbage collection day changes are noted. The full recycling schedule is detailed. Leaf and branch/tree trimmings collection schedules are listed for spring and fall. Special events that take place at Public Works such as the Health Department animal immunizations, Ocean County hazardous waste collection and paper shredding, etc. will be added as dates are available.
There are 8 different recycling routes (R1 through R8). Please note that recycling route R-1 includes parts of the mainland and also the barrier island including Pelican Island. During the summer the garbage and recycling schedules change for the barrier island and Pelican Island only. The mainland schedules do not change. These changes are noted on the calendar.
To check your recycling collection day, you must know the route number for your area. Don't know your recycling, garbage day?
