Why Is My Recycling Still on the Curb? Caldwell Pick Up Has Changed to Thursday

Both commingled and paper pick-ups have moved to later in the week.

When it comes to recycling pick up, Caldwell residents need to forget about Mondays and start thinking Thursdays.

After years of collecting recycling on Mondays, the borough changed last week to a Thursday schedule. By the looks of several Caldwell streets Tuesday, the message is still getting out.

The switch started last week and a new schedule has been posted on the borough's website (also see PDF attached).

Residents should continue to put their recycling out the evening before (Wednesday) or by 6 a.m. on Thursday. Commingled and paper weeks will continue to alternate. 

Caldwell contracts with the First Occupational Center for collection of paper and commingled recyclables.

Any questions? Call the recycling hotline at 973-674-6266.

You have valid points. I agree with you, in this day-and-age, e-mail is the way to go! The added bonus is that it would save the town money on printing costs too, and they could still send 'paper' copies to those who request them.

I too have not received a new schedule. The old one is still hanging in my kitchen.

Many residents have reported that they have not received a new schedule, but the borough clerk confirmed last night that a new schedule was mailed to homes. I, for one, may be guilty of having recycled the recycling schedule.

I did get the new schedule, I was going to throw it out (as usual) but at the last minute I decided to open it and I saw the change in pick-up days. I still think mail is really the best way to go...many seniors do not have e-mail and many others don't check email, but we all get mail.

Recycling in Caldwell has changed from Mondays to Thursdays. Residents either can't get use to the change or aren't aware of it. Please help spread the word to your neighbors.
