How to Recycle

Newspapers — Tie in bundles no higher than 10 inches, or place in paper bags.
Magazines, Catalogs, Junk Mail, Phone Books, Hardcover & Paperback Books, Mixed Paper — Tie in bundles or place in paper bags.
Corrugated Cardboard — Flattened and tied.
Household Dry-Cell Batteries — May be placed out with regular trash.
Co-Mingled Food and Beverage Containers — Glass, aluminum, tin and steel food and beverage containers and pourable plastic bottles may be mixed together, and should be placed in a rigid reusable container such as a crate, bucket, or garbage can. Full containers should not weigh more than 50 pounds or be greater than 20 gallons in size. No plastic bags.

  • Contaminated, improperly prepared, or unacceptable materials will not be collected. Rinse food and beverage containers.
  • Dispose of lids and caps. There is no need to remove labels. Flatten plastic containers to save space.
  • Homeowners in Scotch Plains may "single stream" their recycling, which means both co-mingled material and paper material may be placed in one container.
  • For Scotch Plains Residents who wish to use the Westfield Conservation Center located on Lamberts Mill Road, a special annual fee is available. Call the Westfield Department of Public Works at (908) 789-4100 ext. 600 for more details on obtaining and completing the application.
