Improvements For Residential Recycling At Hunterdon Transfer Station Create Safer, Cleaner Materials


Commissioner Soloway Visits New Residential Recycling Containers at Hunterdon County Transfer Station

Hunterdon County residents dropping off recycling materials at the County’s Transfer Station,

on Petticoat Lane in Clinton Township, will see new recycling containers at a new safer

location, County Board of Commissioners Director Susan J. Soloway has announced.

Soloway said, “Moving the free residential recycling drop-off location out of the way of the

large tractor trailers in use for solid waste disposal will keeps residents safe while placing

plastic, glass, aluminum and cardboard materials in newly covered containers. The upgrade will help to streamline the process, make it safer for residents, and keep the area less cluttered.”


Signage has been updated to reflect the new process and covered bins are now available for

recycling. Materials that can be recycled are listed on the County webpage here

County Solid Waste Division Head Rebecca Lunger, the County’s Certified Recycling

Coordinator, added, “It is important to follow the signs and the rules. Please do not speed on the grounds. Upgrades were made to keep everyone safe and the 5-mph speed limit is strictly enforced.


Also, please no plastic film or bags of any kind. Those using bags to deliver materials should

empty the bag out and take home to reuse or discard as regular solid waste. Remember, just

because plastic has a number on it, doesn’t mean it can go in our recycling bins.”

The Transfer Station and Recycling Depot is located at 11 Petticoat Lane in Clinton Township

and is open for residents Monday through Friday, 7 am until 4:30 pm and on Saturdays from

7:30 am to 1 pm. The facility is closed Sundays and holidays.


Bulk waste drop-off is available for residents at the transfer station, for a fee, on Saturdays from 10:30 am to 1 pm. Residents can call 908-236-9088 for more information.
