Municipalities must report their tonnage electronically by downloading the MS Excel file below. Reports must be emailed to tonnagegrant@dep.nj.gov as an MS Excel attachment by April 30th each year. The title of the email must contain the name of the municipality whose report is being submitted. If a Certified Recycling Coordinator (CRC) from a municipality is reporting on behalf of another municipality, the contact information for the Municipal Recycling Coordinator (MRC) of the municipality whose report is being submitted must be included in the body of the email.

A municipal resolution is no longer required to be submitted to DEP as part of a Municipal Tonnage Grant (MTG) application.
