Residential Recycling For Hunterdon Residents
Updated: Jul 20, 2021
The County has been seeking better litter maintenance at the Transfer Station on Petticoat Lane in Clinton Township that is operated by Waste Management. Toward that goal, I can announce a new system for residential recycling will soon be in operation that will allow residents to drop off recycling materials in designated containers located in a safer, segregated area at the site.
That system should cut down on some of the materials that have been blowing around the site on some of the windy days we have had this year. The County’s Solid Waste Division Head, Rebecca Lunger, is also working with Waste Management on better control of the commercial waste being brought to the facility and having a designated cleanup program.
The transfer station handles both solid waste from commercial haulers and commercial recycling for a fee. RESIDENTIAL BULK WASTE is accepted at the Transfer Station on Saturdays from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm. There is a fee for that service. Residential recycling is free for Hunterdon County residents and materials can be dropped off Monday – Friday 7:00 AM – 4:30 PM.
Additionally, an ident-a-shred event, sponsored by County Clerk Mary Melfi, Sheriff Fred Brown and the Board, is scheduled for June 5th 8 am to 11:30 am and electronics recycling can be dropped off on June 19th, 9 am to 1 pm. Both events are free for residents and take place at the County’s Route 12 complex in Raritan Township. Over the last year, hundreds of tons of materials have been submitted for recycling for which our residents should be commended.
