The backlog at the Recycling Center scrap metal box has eased, and we are now accepting scrap metal again for recycling.
Note that items must be entirely or nearly all metal and empty of any fluids. Do not put refrigerators or other appliances with regrigerants in the scrap pile. Ask an attendant for help.
No non-metallic bulky waste items are accepted. Some prohibited items that we frequently find in the pile include ceramic lamps, rigid plastics (tubs, toters, toys), carpet, chairs. Residents should make an appointment for a Bulky Waste appointment with the Department of Public Works for these kinds of discards (908-755-2187).
