New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program can help you responsibly recycle your working refrigerator and/or freezer for FREE and provide a $50 incentive. You'll be glad to know that approximately 95% of each appliance is recycled. We safely dispose of hazardous chemicals, minimizing waste and environmental impact. Please note that the recycling pickups are now contactless, which means your appliance(s) will be picked up either outside or in an open garage. We are now expanding the eligible appliances to include removal of working room air conditioners and dehumidifiers. You will receive a $25 incentive for each unit recycled; however, the room air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers must be picked up during the same appointment as the refrigerator or freezer. Visit NJCleanEnergy.com/RECYCLING to schedule a pick up.

Congratulations on receiving your two new 65 gallon recycling "totes". They have wheels to easily move around and have lids that are permanently attached.
The equipment that will collect these totes will employ a state-of the-art truck that not only services customers quickly, but also addresses the safety and health concerns of employees. The new technology eliminates the need to physically lift and dump the totes, reducing many injuries, particularly to the back and shoulder areas.
These totes are supplied by Somerset County for the collection of RECYCLING
ONLY. They will remain the property of Somerset County and if you move, you must leave the totes for the next owner. Please remember that the totes will be your
responsibility to properly care for and store. Any loss or damages done to the totes by you will carry a fee. These totes cost approximately $35.00 each.
If during the course of normal wear and tear your totes become unusable, please call us to arrange for a repair or a swap out if necessary.
When you receive the totes:
We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 732-469-3363.

‘Recycle Coach’ Connects Users to Local Recycling Information
Somerset County has launched Recycle Coach, a free mobile app that is now available to residents. The app is designed to make recycling and solid waste information easily accessible as well as promote the “go green” goal of reducing, reusing and recycling within the community.
Residents can access Recycle Coach from their desktop computers, mobile devices, or through digital assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home.
The app provides personalized collection schedules based on a person’s place of residence. After a resident downloads the Recycle Coach app, their mobile calendar will list Somerset County’s recycling events along with local curbside and recycling schedules, and schedule changes due to holidays or inclement weather.
Users of the app can improve their recycling rates by simply programming recycling reminders using the What Goes Where search tool.
The State Department of Environmental Protection has made New Jersey the first state to purchase the Recycle Coach app and make it available to all New Jersey residents free of charge.
Download the free Recycle Coach app through Google Play, the Apple Store, or access the app at www.co.somerset.nj.us/recycle-coach.
