Recycling guide

Electronic waste

You can recycle electronics on designated Saturdays and weekdays. Electronics include:

  • Televisions
  • Computers and monitors
  • Desktop printers and fax machines

Excess cardboard

Call the County Recycling Center at (732) 469-3363 to make an appointment to drop off large quantities of cardboard.

Hazardous waste

The Somerset County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program provides a legal and cost-free way to dispose of unwanted household items that cannot be disposed of in the regular trash.

You can drop off propane cylinders at the hazardous waste events.

Home medical waste

Do not dispose of medications down the drain because wastewater treatment facilities are not designed to remove pharmaceutical compounds. You can dispose of unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications at the Household Hazardous Waste events.

Household batteries

Batteries should be recycled when they reach their end-of-life. Learn about safe battery disposal.

Recycling tonnage grant reporting

Businesses and institutions, including multifamily housing owners, need to report the weight of recycling materials collected on their premises every year. Report your recycling tonnage.


Residents can drop off up to 8 tires with or without rims at any one of the First Saturday of the Month events.
