Recycling & Waste Disposal

Recycling is an important way for individuals and businesses to reduce the waste they generate. Hunterdon County residents and businesses have access to a variety of recycling opportunities.

Each of Hunterdon's Municipalities manages recycling and waste disposal differently. Some municipalities provide curbside recycling and waste collection; many have subscriptions with private waste haulers, and in other areas recycling and waste need to be taken by residents to their designated facility.

Municipal and Private Haulers

Residential: The primary way for residents to recycle is through curbside collection run by either a private hauler you contract with or with your municipality. Information on the availability of curbside collection can be found in the Recycling Resources page. Residents should be aware that guidelines for what can be recycled and how to prepare and sort the recyclables vary by the hauler.

Business: For over 25 years it has been the law for all businesses to recycle in Hunterdon County. Private or municipal haulers provide opportunities for businesses to recycle.

Recycling Locations

Within Hunterdon County, there are municipal and private recycling drop-off locations. These drop-off locations provide local residents the ability to properly recycle. Collection locations and general information can be found by contacting the municipality. These locations may also host household electronic waste collection events.

The Hunterdon County Transfer Station is a drop-off location open to all county residents as a supplement to regular curbside recycling during the following hours:  Monday through Friday 7:30 am and 4:30 pm.  Saturday from 7:30 am to 1:00 pm.
