Cut It & Leave It Program
Grass clipping are a major source of waste collected by the Department of Public Works. In this program the City of Rahway currently collects yard waste separately from other waste types. Yard waste items include grass clippings, leaves and branches which are sent to a composting facility. This process has a financial obligation for every tax payer in our community.
TVs, monitors, computers, keyboards, VCRs, fax machines and printers. Collected by appointment.

Keeping Rahway Clean
New Jersey Clean Communities is a statewide, comprehensive, litter-abatement program created by the passage of the Clean Communities Act in 1986. The Act provides a funding source for the program and guidelines for the use of funds. Municipalities and counties receive Clean Communities grants in the form of state-aid each year.
