Bulk trash is any item you can’t include in a normal garbage day: furniture, floors, appliances, car parts, and liquids. Fortunately for New Jersey residents, most communities offer one day a month to collect these garbage items in bulk. New Jersey makes recycling easy: Simply place all your eligible recyclable items in a bin without the hassle of separating glass from plastics or paper. You can use them as compost in your own backyard to provide a healthy outdoor space, or use one of New Jersey’s 200 composting facilities to recycle your garden cuttings.
New Jersey has implemented “Project Medicine Drop,” in which residents can anonymously dispose of their medications at the local police station seven days a week, 365 days a year.
