Recycling Decals

Tenafly residents wishing to use the Recycling Center must register for a decal at the Public Works Office, located at 107 Grove Street. There is no cost for the decal. Decals are issued to non-commercial passenger vehicles, sport utility vehicles, passenger vans or light trucks only, that show no markings indicative of commercial use. Decals are not issued to trailers, nor are they permitted in Tenafly Recycling and Convenience Center.  

To register for a decal, residents must provide valid New Jersey Driver’s license, proof of residency and vehicle registration. Residents will be asked to bring the paperwork from the Public Works office to the Recycling Center at 153 Grove Street, where a Recycling Center employee will affix a recycling center decal to the registered automobile. Decals are not issued to commercially registered vehicles.
