Eagle Enterprises Recycling is Monmouth's curbside recycling contractor.
New residents are given a rolling recycling tote. Simply come into City Hall (100 E. Broadway) when you set up your new water service to receive full information on the recycling program.
Items that can be recycled at curbside include aluminum, steel, glass (clear, brown, green), plastics (1 through 5 & 7) corrugated cardboard (including cereal and tissue boxes), magazines, newspapers, hardbound (and paperback) books, 3rd class (junk) mail, plastic bags, bubble wrap and office waste (colored and white paper).
Lids may stay on. Please rinse all containers, jars and cans. If you are recycling multiple plastic bags or shredded paper, please place them inside of a plastic bag (like a grocery sack) and tie it, so the contents won't blow away when they are loaded.
Curbside pickup is every other week on the same day as trash pickup. See the schedule document below for the pickup schedule. If you have more material than will fit in your tote, please place it next to the tote.
Holidays for curbside recycling pickup are New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. If these holidays occur on a weekday, the schedule is delayed by one day.
