It is the law to recycle in the State of New Jersey as it is in the County of Hunterdon and all of our municipalities.
We should think of recycling as more than a state-mandated LAW. It is part of being environmentally conscious for yourself and our future. Therefore, Hunterdon County is asking all of its citizens, business owners, and visitors to comply with our program to maintain the high quality of life that Hunterdon strives to keep.
Hunterdon County and our municipalities offer various recycling opportunities for households, schools, and businesses alike. Please see the Municipal page to see what you can do to help our environment.
