Trash Service Updates and Reminders

Beginning Monday, November 1, solid waste (trash) pickup in Collingswood will transition from Borough staff and be handled by Solterra Waste (also known as Central Jersey Waste). Your pickup days will not change.

To report trash pickup issues, contact Solterra Waste directly at 609-771-8005 or email

Starting January 1, all trash customers must put out waste in cans no larger than 32 gallons as required by Solterra Waste. Waste in cans larger than 32gals may not be picked up starting in 2022. Trash cans should also have tight fitting lids. To avoid mess and vermin, bagged waste should not be placed curbside. All waste should be bagged and placed in receptacles no larger than 32 gallons with tight fitting lids.

Recycling and yard waste pickup will continue to be picked up by Borough staff. Collingswood recycling is single stream. Mix all your recycling into one container - glass, paper and plastics can all be mixed in your blue recycling container. You can recycle rigid plastics #1 & 2 (no bags or caps or other numbered plastics). Bagged or contaminated (with materials that are not recyclable) recycling may be left curbside. See recycling info here.

To report yard waste or recycling issues please contact Borough staff by emailing or calling 856-858-0533.

Collingswood has added one final week of yard waste collection the week of Nov 1 to collect all outstanding clippings and brush. Place yard waste, brush and clippings curbside for a special collection on your regular scheduled trash day. Yard waste must be in open containers separate from your regular trash. Regular leaf collection will continue through March. Please remember to rake leaves to the curb strip, DO NOT place in the street to avoid clogging storm drains.

Bulk items such as household appliances, furniture, etc., may be discarded with normal trash pickup. Limit of 2 items per week. Construction debris is not permitted curbside. Cathode-ray (tube) TVs cannot be left curbside. Electronics can be disposed of at Magnum recycling in Pennsauken or at countywide recycling events.
