Reminders:

  • Drive slowly through the parking lot. Listen to the directions of any volunteer wearing a safety vest.
  • For safety reasons, TV screens or monitors with broken glass or other sharp edges will not be accepted. Those items must be brought to Essex County’s Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Day (next event date TBA); visit ecuanj.com for more information.
  • Limit of 5 boxes per household of papers to be shredded. Shredding is for Livingston residents only, and home-based businesses or institutions are not eligible.
  • Please do not bring books or newspapers to be shredded. Confidential documents only.
  • Residents who want to watch as their papers are shredded must park their cars in the spaces to the right, just beyond the shredding truck; this will allow traffic to continue to flow steadily.
  • Early drop-off is available for electronics only; see below for details.

Under the Township’s recycling ordinance and New Jersey state law, it is mandatory to recycle electronic items. They cannot be placed at the curb for collection.

Thanks to the Livingston High School Science National Honor Society for this reminder! Watch:

Early Drop Off for Electronics:

Only electronics (no papers to be shredded) can be dropped off in advance on:

Thursday, 6/22/17, 8:30 am – 10:00 pm, in Craft Room 1
Friday, 6/23/17, 8:30 am – 10:00 pm, in Craft Room 1
Saturday, 6/24/17, 8:30 am – 10:00 pm, in Craft Room 1

A cart is available in the lower lobby, should you need it, to assist you in bringing your electronics into the designated room. DO NOT leave your Electronics outside of the Senior/Community Center.

What if I can’t make it on June 25 (or the early drop off dates)?

Essex County residents can deliver their items free of charge to: Advanced Recovery, Inc., 83 Roosevelt Ave., Belleville, NJ.

Or, you may choose to wait and instead bring your items to the next Livingston Free Electronics Recycling & Paper Shredding Event:
