General Recycling

Livingston's Commingled Recycling and Paper Recycling are collected on alternating weeks by Waste Industries.

The pick up day for each resident's location is determined by a zone. You can find your zone, collection schedule and what’s recyclable on our Recycling page or by calling the vendor at 908-436-1966.

Collection Times

Put your Recycling out any time after noon on the day before your scheduled pick-up. View the Sections and Zones by Street for garbage and recycling.

If you have any problems or questions, please call Waste Industries directly at 908-436-1966. Town Hall cannot help answer Recycling collection questions.
