Material Accepted For Curbside Recycling Collection by the MCMUA and Preparation Instructions

For Denville, the MCMUA collects single-stream mixed recyclables. This means that aluminum, glass bottles and jars, steel cans and plastic containers can be mixed with recyclable paper including newspaper, corrugated cardboard, junk mail, office paper, magazines, cartons, etc., for curbside collection. Additionally, none of the newspaper or cardboard needs to be bundled or tied. There is still a 50-pound weight limit on the recycling container put out at curbside for collection by the MCMUA.

Denville also operates a municipal recycling depot where certain recyclables can be dropped off for recycling. Click here to read about the Denville municipal recycling depot.
