What to Recycle in Leonia
Leonia recycles on alternating Wednesdays: one week it's commingled containers, the next it's mixed paper.
To find out what's getting collected this week, visit the
Borough of Leonia's calendar online.
"Commingled containers" means things like: plastic containers that are labeled with the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7;
glass bottles and jars; metal beverage cans and food tins; and clean aluminum foil (without food on it).
"Mixed Paper" means things like: paper & junk mail; newspapers & magazines, cardboard & flattened boxes;
brown paper bags; clean pizza boxes (without food on them); plastic-coated milk containers.
Please empty and rinse all bottles, cans, and containers.
Bits of food, oils and liquids can spoil a whole load of recycling!
