Dual stream recycling began January 1, 2017.  
Paper and cardboard must be separated 
from commingled recyclables due to rising costs.


Drop Off


While curbside recycling is still available to residents, dumpsters are also located at 320 Rivervale Road, the DPW building, for residents to drop off recyclables Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 2:30pm.  The Recycling Center is closed on weekends and holidays. If dropping off recycling at the River Vale Recycling Center, items cannot be left in plastic bags!  Plastic bags can be recycled at local supermarkets.
