Container Guidelines

Items must be out before 7 a.m.

Containers, when full, may not weigh more than 50 lbs. Containers weighing more than 50 lbs. will not be emptied. Carts are dumped using a hydraulic tipper and do not require the same weight restrictions.

ACUA will no longer empty drums and barrels of any size for recycling, trash or yard waste.  

Most Atlantic County residents are eligible to receive one 20-gallon recycling bucket per year at no cost (click here to request). If using a non-ACUA recycling container, please ensure it is clearly marked for recycling. Request stickers online.  

Please refer to your municipality's trash and recycling ordinance for other specific container guidelines.
