Plainsboro Launches Recycle Coach

Residents looking to reduce their household waste and become better recyclers, look no further than the Recycle Coach platform.

Residents can access Recycle Coach from their desktop computers, mobile devices, or through digital assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. By leveraging the power of voice technology, the platform makes it easy for people to get local disposal information for thousands of household items when they need it. And the best part: it’s absolutely free.


The Plainsboro Public Works Department is responsible for the maintenance of Township roadways, storm drains, parks and recreational facilities, and all other township properties.
