If you missed this opportunity, the final free Electronics Recycling & Paper Shredding Event of 2017 will be on Saturday, October 7, 2017.

Residents:  These events offer the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted electronics and small appliances, whether or not the items are working.

Please mark your calendar!


  • 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 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:

What if I missed June 25th and I don’t want to wait until October 7th?

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