MCMUA Collection

Recycling Collection is provided via contracts with Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority.

For questions about recycling collection, please call 973-543-4555. Residents can send additional recycling questions by email.

Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority provides recycling pickup on Mondays. Recycling is picked up dual-stream with paper and bottles/cans collected on alternating Mondays. Weeks following a missed collection due to holiday or weather will have both sets of materials (papers and bottles/cans) collected on the same day, yet in different containers.

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 single-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 recycling container put out at curbside for collection by MCMUA.  MCMUA suggests no larger than 32-gallon containers so residents to not go above 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.
