North Haledon Recycling Center

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.  Here is some helpful information about the Recycling Center and how you, too, can be an active recycler.

Newspapers and Cardboard 
can either be brought to the Recycling Center or can be bundled, or placed in paper bags, for curbside collection on paper/cardboard recycling day. NO PLASTIC BAGS PLEASE!

Commingled items: Glass bottles and jars, plastic bottles, aluminum and tin cans can either be brought to the Recycling Center or placed in a permanent container no larger than 25 gallons, and put out at the curb the night before the scheduled commingled recycling day. 

Scrap Metal may be brought to the Recycling Center and placed in the appropriate container.

Tires may be brought to the Recycling Center.  There is a nominal fee for recycling tires.

Used Motor Oil may be brought to the Recycling Center and emptied into the tanks available for disposal.

Used Clothing may be brought to the Recycling Center and placed in the appropriate container. 

White Goods: Stoves, refrigerators, washers, dryers will be picked up curbside. Please call 973-427-7793 to schedule a pick up.  You may also bring these items to the Recycling Center.

Electronic Waste: effective January 1, 2011, N.J.S.A. 13:1E-99 et seq., prohibits the disposal of covered electronic devices, such as computers, televisions, monitors and portable/laptop computers. These items may be brought to the Recycling Center for disposal.  Please call 973-427-7793 to schedule a pick up for larger items.
