Improvements for residential recycling at Hunterdon County transfer station create safer, cleaner materials drop-off

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Hunterdon County) – 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, according to County Board of Commissioners Director Susan Soloway.

“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,” Soloway said.

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 at www.co.hunterdon.nj.us/recycling.html.

County Solid Waste Division Head Rebecca Lunger, the County’s Certified Recycling Coordinator, said, “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, 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, 7:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 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 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. For more information, residents can call 908-236-9088.
