The Division of Solid Waste Management

The Division of  Solid Waste Management is responsible for the collection and disposal of solid waste materials, including bulk items. The Division has implemented such initiatives as the Cleaner Vision Program and the Graffiti Blasters Program to help beautify our city. For information regarding recycling please call The Mercer County Improvement Authority at (609) 278-8086. Residents can pick up recycling buckets at 707 Calhoun Ave. with a valid NJ Driver's Licence or proof of City residency between the hours of 8am-3pm, Mon.-Sat. and no longer at MCIA.

The Division of Solid Waste Management offers a special pick up for large bulk items. Bulk items include furniture and household appliances. For more information or to schedule an appointment for a special pick up, please call (609) 989-3175, Monday through Friday, 7:30a.m. - 3:30p.m.

The Graffiti Blaster's Program provides equipment and manpower to remove graffiti from City of Trenton buildings. The cornerstone of this program is the deployment of high pressure machines that can safely remove graffiti from brick, stone, cement and metal with the use of baking soda. Building owners can request this service by signing a permission form that gives the City of Trenton authorization to remove graffiti from the property. For more information on the Graffiti Blaster's Program, please call the Division of Solid Waste at (609) 989-3175, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
