2020 Recycling Tonnage Reports

Provided below are 2020 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 cabirmingham@co.morris.nj.us. In addition, feel free to call any of the businesses directly. The telephone numbers for the businesses are listed on their cover letters.


(added 3/25/2021) - 2020 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 2020 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).

    (added 3/25/2021)Summary by town - (PDF File) - This report shows a summary of tonnage collected by the MCMUA by material by municipality. Print out the pages that are applicable to your municipality. Listed on each page of each MCMUA tonnage grant reports are the compositions by material percentage for all the commingled recyclables.

    (added 3/25/2021)2020 Single-Stream Composition Break Out Tool (Excel File) - This tool breaks out single-stream recycling tons into individual materials, in order to report them as required by the NJDEP. The MCMUA revised the NJDEP single-stream break out tool to include percentages that more accurately reflect Morris County's audited composition. These percents are based on composition audits done on material collected by the MCMUA and since no new audits were performed in 2020, the 2020 composition is the same as previous years . This tool is only for single-stream material. Please note, these Morris County specific percentages have lower residue levels than the default levels provided in the NJDEP's tool.

  2. (added 3/25/2021) : MCMUA 2020 Tire Recycling by Town - (PDF File) - This report shows tires that were collected by the Morris County Mosquito Extermination Commission (these tires had been illegally dumped in a variety of municipalities) and/or accepted from individuals at the MCMUA's transfer station.  All tires accepted at the transfer stations were shipped to and recycled at Casings, Inc., Hillside, NJ.

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.
