Recycling Guidelines

Listed below are the guidelines that the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) collection crews will follow:

Two items of bulky waste will be collected curbside with the weekly MSW collection - Bulky waste is defined as furniture, uncontaminated textiles, small appliances, wood waste, and tires with rims removed.

Tires - Two per resident will be collected provided that they have had the metal rims removed. No tires will be collected from commercial establishments.

Wood Waste - Will be collected as bulky waste item if it is of manageable size, four feet in length, tied and bundled or placed in a trash container.

Construction and Demolition Material (C&D) - If the material is generated by a homeowner as the result of construction, demolition, or remodeling of their residence, it will be collected curbside. The material must be placed in a container or properly prepared for collection. If a contractor performs the work, the C&D material must be hauled and disposed of properly by the homeowner or contractor.

Yard Waste - Yard waste (leaves, grass, clean wood and brush) shall be placed in bio-degradable paper bags (bags which are designed to decompose by natural process) or rigid reusable trash containers.
