Recycling Information


Residents are required to recycle and we absolutely encourage every family to recognize the importance of this civic responsibility. Not only does recycling benefit our environment, but it also impacts favorably on the township budget and your taxes. We make it easy for residents with our centrally-located recycling center and bimonthly curbside collection of recyclables.

If you have any recycling questions or concerns, please call the Randolph Township Department of Health at 973-989-7050.

Recycling Center

The recycling center accepts materials from Randolph residents only. Residency stickers are required for all vehicles entering the center. These stickers are free and good for as long as you own your vehicle. Residents can obtain separate permits for each vehicle. Stickers are issued at the recycling center (stop by the office) or at the Randolph Township Division of Engineering at town hall. Bring proof of residency (i.e., vehicle registration) when you come.

Curbside Single Stream Recycling

Curbside collection of recyclables is provided every other week to all town streets with the exception of garden apartments. See our collection routes page to determine your route number and collection day. All recycling should be placed curbside by 6 am to ensure pickup.

Gone are the days of separating recyclables. As of January 1, 2015, all of the following items may be placed together in one recycling container:

  • household plastic containers
  • aluminum and metal cans
  • glass bottles and jars
  • newspapers, magazines, catalogs, paperback books, phone books
  • cardboard (corrugated/chipboard)
  • mixed office paper

The container you use for recycling must have handles and size/weight limitations apply-35 gallon volume and 50 pounds. Ideally, to avoid confusion with garbage containers, single-stream recycling containers should be labeled "recyclables only." Decals may also be obtained from the health department.
