Know Your Garbage Day or Sanitation Collection Schedule
One of the most important things to know if you are new to Jersey City is the “Sanitation Collection Schedule” or the garbage day… you know, trash collection.
If you are an old-timer in your area, you probably already know when to take your trash out. But if – for some reason – you decided to move, it’s probably best to know ahead when the dump truck is coming to your area to avoid the development of filth mountain in your apartment or house.

By using the system above, I was able to find out the garbage day of my friends who live on Griffith Street, in the Heights area of JC: Trash days on Tuesday and Friday; Recycables on Wednesday.
Therefore, they must put their waste out no earlier than 7PM the night before the actual collection day, because the dump trucks come early in the morning. Make sure the trash is in the curbside or it won’t be collected at all. That simple.
Do you know your garbage day schedule? If you live in a condo, what are the rules in taking out the trashes?
Most importantly, do you know the zone where you live in? Just checking.
