All other trash and recycle collections remain unchanged. Additionally, residents may continue to drop off recycling and yard waste at the Comly Ave water plant Monday-Friday from 7am-3pm.

It is critical that recycling rules be followed. NO PLASTIC BAGS of any kind should be in yard waste or recycling, either bagging the material or in the material. Materials bagged in plastic are rejected at the recycling plant.

Acceptable recycling includes:
  • Rinsed plastic or glass bottles
  • jars and jugs
  • rinsed aluminum and steel cans
  • clean paper, and clean cardboard
If you are unsure if a piece is recyclable, remember this, "When in doubt, throw it out."

No plastic bags of any kind should be in or around your recycling.  See the County’s guide to recycling here.

No illegal dumping, trash or construction materials will be collected at this site. Only approved recycling and yard waste (dumped from cans or in paper bags only) will be accepted at drop off. Drop off is for Collingswood residents ONLY. The drop off site will be monitored.
