  • Trash and recycling containers should be metal or plastic, water tight, have handles, not exceed 32 gallons and weigh no more than 50 pounds when filled.
  • Plastic trash bags may be used in place of containers, but must not be overloaded or ruptured. Metal drums not originally designed to contain trash are NOT acceptable.
  • Five-gallon buckets are not considered a proper container for trash and/or recycles. If you place your recycles or trash in a five-gallon bucket, it will be collected as a recycle item as they are recyclable. It is not considered a reusable container. Please use a reusable container to insure proper pick-up.
  • Any trash or construction debris generated by a contractor is the responsibility of the contractor and the homeowner. The City will not remove this waste, even if it is placed curbside. Residents should insist that the contractor use a dumpster and private hauler for construction debris.
  • All trash must be placed at the curb before 7:00 AM on trash day, but not before 5:00 PM on the day prior to collection. After collection, empty containers shall be removed from curbside promptly, no later than 7:00 PM.

The City of Woodbury provides E-Waste Recycling

Effective January 1, 2011, The City of

Woodbury is expanding its curbside recycling program by including electronic waste recycling. The program is designed to remove computers and electronic components from the household waste stream.

The collection of e-waste will be similar to the metal collection program where Woodbury residents are asked to place the “E-Waste” items curbside and to keep them separated from your regular trash. Residents are asked to contact the Public Works office (856-853-0892) to be placed on the collection list. Once on the list, Public Works employees will collect your items curbside. All items will be taken to a NJDEP approved recycling facility for processing.
