Absecon Residents: Recycling Carts are Coming September 2021!

 The City of Absecon, through a grant with The Recycling Partnership and the help of the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA), will be providing all homeowners with new 96-gallon recycling carts.

 Your new recycling carts will be delivered to your home the week of September 20. This cart will be the primary container your home uses for recycling. Click here for more information.
