The North Haledon Recycling Center is ever expanding thanks to the commitment and conscientiousness of the Borough residents. More and more people are realizing how important recycling is: not only is it the right thing to do, but the Borough receives a recycling grant proportionate to the tonnage of its recycling, which ultimately keeps taxes lower. Below is some helpful information about the Recycling Center and how you, too, can be an active recycler. Please also see a visual summary here
Recycling and Garbage should be put out the night before! Pickup times could vary by week.
