Bayonne Switching to Night Recycling Pick-Ups Effective October 4

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne is switching to night-time pick-ups of recycling effective Tuesday, October 4.  The new schedule will cover cans & bottles and mixed paper & cardboard.  Mayor Davis said, “The major reason for the change is that night-time traffic is lighter than morning traffic.  The recycling trucks will have an easier time getting around without commuter vehicles and school buses on the city streets at the same time.”  Mayor Davis continued, “It will be easier to identify missed pick-ups, if they are still on the streets in the morning.”

            Bayonne’s existing three zones for garbage and recycling will remain the same.
