Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne will begin new garbage and recycling schedules, effective Thursday, July 1. On that date, A&L, a local hauling contractor, will begin picking up both garbage and recycling under new contracts with the City of Bayonne.
For both garbage and recycling pick-ups, Bayonne will be divided into three zones.
Zone 1 will extend from 1st Street to 16th Street. This area will include Broadway from 1st Street to 16th Street. It will also include Trembley Court and Country Village Court, because they connect to 16th Street and do not intersect with streets in Zone 2. The boundaries of Zone 1 remain the same as they were under the previous schedule.
Zone 2 will extend from 16th Street to 32nd Street. This area will include Broadway from 16th Street to 32nd Street, all of Avenue F, Prospect Avenue from 19th Street to 32nd Street, West Drive, East Court, and Centre Lane. Please be advised that the northern boundary of Zone 2 has moved from 30th Street up to 32nd Street.
Zone 3 will extend from 32nd Street to 63rd Street. The area will include Broadway from 32nd Street to the City Line, Harbor Pointe, Sycamore Road, and Colonial Drive. Please be advised that Zone 3 starts now at 32nd Street instead of at 30th Street.
Beginning Thursday, July 1, all garbage pick-ups will take place at night, beginning at 9:00 p.m.
Zone 1 will have regular garbage pick-ups on Sunday and Wednesday nights.
(Special note: Under the old schedule, Zone 1 would have put out both garbage and recycling on Wednesday, June 30. Due to the transition to the new schedule, the Public Works Department is asking residents of Zone 1 to put out garbage only on Wednesday, June 30, and to hold back the recycling until Wednesday, July 7, if possible.)
Zone 2 will have regular garbage pick-ups on Monday and Thursday nights.
Zone 3 will have regular garbage pick-ups on Tuesday and Friday nights.
Under the new schedule, there will be no bulk pick-ups on regular garbage nights. Bulk refuse, such as household furniture, is limited to three items per collection. Bulk items will be picked up by special arrangement on the second and third Saturdays of each month. Please reserve a bulk pick-up in advance by calling 201-858-6123.
Mattresses must be wrapped in plastic. They will be picked up on Tuesdays by reservation only. You must call 201-858-6123 to schedule a mattress pick-up.
For any questions or concerns about garbage, please call 201-858-6123, Monday to Friday, except holidays, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Beginning Thursday, July 1, all recycling pick-ups for bottles & cans and mixed paper & cardboard will take place in daytime, beginning at 5:00 a.m.
Zone 1 will have recycling pick-ups on Wednesdays.
