Hoboken Residents to Receive Free Garbage Containers from City

HOBOKEN, NJ – The City of Hoboken is taking proactive measures to enhance sanitation and reduce rodent access to trash. Starting Monday, September 25, the city will distribute 3,500 lidded garbage containers to its residents. This move follows the recent adoption of an updated containerization ordinance, which mandates properties of 10 units or fewer to use these containers for trash disposal on collection nights.

Residents can pick up their containers at the Multi-Service Center located at 124 Grand St. from 1 p.m. The distribution will span several days and multiple locations to accommodate the community.

Pick-up Schedule:

  • September 25: 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Multi-Service Center hockey rink on Adams Street between First and Second Streets.
  • September 26: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the same location.
  • September 28: 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the intersection of 13th & Jefferson Streets.
  • September 30: 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Union Dry Dock, 901 Sinatra Drive.

To ensure fairness, the containers will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents are required to present proof of residency, such as a utility bill, signed lease, or license. Registered agents should bring a copy of their management contract agreement. Notably, each property is eligible to receive up to three containers.

The City of Hoboken encourages its residents to take advantage of this initiative, aiming for cleaner streets and a healthier living environment.
