COVID-19 UPDATE (May 23): Residential recycling pick-up schedule is unchanged.

Unfortunately, due to financial repercussions of the virus, the pink bag program has ended.

As before the program began, you can bring items to Goodwill, Savers, etc. (check their schedules).  


  • Recycling bins containing PLASTIC BAGS or WRAPS will NOT be picked up. More info. 

  • We're working on getting a new plastic bag recycling shed at Orange Transfer Station. Meanwhile, keep recycling plastic bags and wraps at local stores, (Shop Rite, Target, Kohl's, and more).  

  • Do NOT put plastic bags, packaging or wraps in your blue recycling bin
