E Waste Collection
The Township of Brick no longer offers curbside collection of E-Waste or accepts E-Waste at the Township Recycling Center. E-Waste is made up of electronic devices such as televisions, radios, computers, mobile phones and other electronic devices.
The elimination of E-Waste collection was necessitated by the rising costs to dispose of electronic items. At one time, the Township generated revenue through E-Waste collection. Over recent years, the service began costing the township money.
Residents may still dispose of E-Waste at the Ocean County Recycling Center, 601 New Hampshire Avenue in Lakewood Township.

Municipal Offices are closed on these days and there are no Public Works collections on the observed holiday.
