2024 Salem Township Recycling Collection Calendar


Salem Township Recycling pickup is an every fourth week schedule on Tuesday.  Please visit to view the dates on the calendar on the right side of the Home Page.

Accepting: newspapers, grocery bags, clear glass, empty aerosol cans, plastic bottles and jugs. Please rinse food containers. We also take magazines, phone books, flattened cardboard, newspapers, office paper and junk mail. We now can take household batteries placed in zipper lock plastic bags.

Private drives and seasonal roads (unpaved) will not get pick up in front of their house. You will need to put recycle bin at your nearest crossroad.
