2016 Recycling Tonnage Reports

Provided below are 2016 recycling tonnage reports provided by individual recycling markets as well as the MCMUA. These reports are useful for municipal recycling coordinators while completing their annual recycling tonnage reporting forms.

If you have question on this material please contact Cheryl Birmingham at (973) 285-8395 or by email at In addition, feel free to call any of the businesses directly. The telephone numbers for the businesses are listed on their cover letters.

2016 Recycling Tax ($3/ton) Paid By Towns in Tipping Fees (PDF File) - This report lists the $3/ton recycling tax collected by the MCMUA in 2016 on the solid waste accepted for disposal at the MCMUA transfer stations. This money was then sent to the Treasurer of the State of New Jersey in accordance with the Recycling Enhancement Act. The report only provides information for those towns that pay the tip fee directly to the MCMUA using their municipal accounts. If a hauler is paying the disposal tip fees directly, then you will have to get this recycling tax collected from each respective hauler. You can use this report to fill out the certification in the municipal recycling tonnage grant process that requires each town to certify the amount of money paid as part of the $3/tax.

Notes:It is suggested that you look through each report in its entirety to make sure that you have all of the tonnage generated in your municipality.  Be sure to check under all possible names and be aware that some reports from some markets may be sorted by common location names (i.e. Flanders, Whippany, Stirling, etc.) and/or zip codes and not the official names of the municipality (i.e. Mount Olive, Hanover, Long Hill).

Reports Provided Only to MCMUA from Non-MCMUA Recycling Facilities

The tonnage reports below are provided by markets directly to the MCMUA. Municipalities are unlikely to have been sent these reports directly from the market and should include the tonnages from these recycling market reports in their own municipal reports.

Reports From Large Box Stores Reported to the NJDEP

We are posting the 2016 tonnage reports from large box stores (e.g. Dollar General Corporation, Home Depot, Target and WalMart/Sam’s Club stores). The reports have been sent by these big box stores directly to Joe Davis, NJDEP. Note that most of the materials listed are being back-hauled to a company distribution center. It is recommended that you contact your municipal store directly to obtain information on the recycling of material that was not back-hauled. This data is shared by NJDEP as a courtesy since so many ask about it but none of this data should appear in any of the annual Municipal Tonnage Reports since Joe Davis will be adding these tonnages such reports at a later date.

Reports Previously Provided to Towns from Non-MCMUA Recycling Facilities

The tonnage reports below are provided by markets directly to municipalities, though the MCMUA has obtained a county-wide version of these reports. Municipalities are likely to have been sent these reports directly from the market and may have already included the tonnages from these recycling market reports in their own municipal reports. If this is the case, the reports are duplicates of the information towns already have.

  • (probably not coming soon) Cipollini Carting & Recycling, Inc. of Rockaway, NJ - In the past Cippollini provided a recycling tonnage report to the MCMUA in addition to mailing the report to to each municipality. Cipollini requested this report not be published on the web and is for the use of municipal recycling coordinators only. Please contact Cippollini at 973-538-2003 to request your municipal report if you think you need one.

  • Tilcon Recycling 2016 Tonnage Reports from Oxford, Mt. Hope, Pompton Lakes and Kearny facilities. Note that Tilcon realized that it made an error in its original recycling tonnages for 2016 (added 2/6/17). Their report ran only asphalt tonnages and completely skipped concrete, brick & block. To make up for it, Ticon provided a revised report (added 3/8/17) with only concrete brick & block tonnages.
