The Department of Environmental Services maintains municipal parks and public buildings, sweeps and shovels the streets, orchestrates garbage and recycling collection, repairs Hoboken’s streets and executes the municipal code as it pertains to sanitation.

Recycling/Garbage Pickup

To keep our streets clean and citizens healthy, this office manages city wide garbage, recycling, and bulk removal programs. We also coordinate with the county to provide drop off days for hazardous materials. All items for pick up should be placed curb side after 9pm on the appropriate day. Failure to follow this and other municipal ordinances can result in the issuing of a summons. For more information about these programs, review we can be reached at (201) 420-2385 or you can click here.

Sanitation Inspectors

The Department of Environmental Services’ Sanitation Inspectors enforce the Municipal Code as it pertains to garbage, recycling, litter, streets, sidewalks, and snow removal.
