Patriotic Tin Cans are an easy and frugal decoration! The imagination is endless in terms of uses and can be used as a vase with some flowers inside or filled with plastic utensils or even left empty! You could even poke holes through them with a nail or drill and add a tea light candle and turn them into luminaries. Regardless, they will make a cute table decoration for your patriotic event that won't cost you much!

Please do not throw plastic bags in the recycling bin.

There are many collection places that will take them to upcycle. 


Do you know what day recycling is picked up? How about the proper way to dispose of an old air conditioner unit? All that information and much more is now available at your fingertips via the RECYCLE COACH app.
It's simple and easy to use.
To see your zone, just click on "View Schedule" and type in your address.

This free app provides residents in The Borough of Sayreville with sanitation and recycling information specific to their zone. The app along with our website features a monthly calendar of sanitation and recycling pick-up days, a search function that provides information on the proper way to dispose of specific items and tips on ways to reduce waste. Users can also set reminders to inform them of sanitation and recycling pick-up days, as well as directly report problems to the Public Works Department.
New Jersey has become the first state to bring RECYCLE COACH technology, free of charge, to all resdients to help increase recycling rates statewide and provide information in a simple, clear, and concise manner. Thanks to the Department of Environmental Protection who purchased RECYCLE COACH'S online technology, Sayreville residents can now access information through their smart devices and computer in 2019.


The RECYCLE COACH application download is available on the Google Play and Apple Store for free.
