In the event of inclement weather, for up-to-the minute information, please visit www.mcmua.com to determine if curbside collection has been canceled. If you do not have Internet access, call the town office. Please be aware that collection may begin on a particular day, but, due to safety concerns, crews may not be able to complete because weather conditions may change.
Residents wanting our crews to return to collect “missed” material, must call town hall at (973) 543-4555 before on the morning following collection day. Before a cut-off time existed, crews had been returning to towns, several times in one week for one or two calls, which was very inefficient. Residents who call after will have their material collected on the next regularly scheduled collection day
PREPARATION OF RECYCLABLE MATERIALS:
• Material Preparation — Please click here for information on the NEW recycling procedures effective August 2011. Single stream recycling is here! Please flatten all corrugated cardboard and empty and rinse all containers. Residents should also note that cardboard beer and soda packs are now recyclable as well as aluminum pie plates, trays and foil. The MUA now accepts plastic food and beverage containers and rigid plastics with the #1, #2, #4, #5 and #7 symbols on them. Shredded paper, click here to view disposal instructions.
• Label Containers. Please use identifying labels (e.g., trash only, recyclables only), especially when lids are placed on the containers.
• Container Weight.All containers must have handles and should weigh no more than 50 lbs when full.
• Recyclables must be placed at the curb the night before collection. This is the same as in previous years, but it is listed again because it is so important. We are trying to minimize the number of missed pick-ups. By placing the materials out the night before, residents ensure the materials will be at curbside when the truck arrives. The MUA’s trucks leave from Dovershortly after , so the crews can be arriving in town as early as
