Inclement Weather or Missed Material

Weeks following a missed collection due to inclement weather or holiday will have both sets of materials (paper and bottles/cans) collected on the same day, yet in different containers.
Preparation of Recyclable Materials
For Mendham Township, the MCMUA collects dual-stream recyclables with paper and bottles/cans collected on alternating Mondays. This means that aluminum, glass bottles and jars, steel cans and plastic containers (#1,#2,#5 only) can be mixed together for collection.  In a separate container, place recyclable paper including newspaper, corrugated cardboard, junk mail, office paper, magazines, cartons, etc. for curbside collection.  Newspaper and cardboard are not required to be bundled or tied. 
Container Weight: There is a 50 pound weight limit on each filled recyling container put out at curbside for collection by MCMUA.  MCMUA suggests no larger than 32-gallon containers so residents to not go avove the single container 50-pound limit.  Use multiple containers for set-outs heavier than 50 pounds.
Recyclables must be placed at the curb the night before collection.  By placing materials out the night before, residents ensure that curbside recyclables are picked up.
