Holiday Recycling Do's and Don'ts

HOLIDAY LIGHTS RECYCLING - Keep the Holidays Green!

2020-2021 Recycling Calendar and Guidelines

On January 1, 2011, televisions and computers, including laptops are banned from all landfills and incinerators in New Jersey.

Electronic Recycling Dropoff (Computers and TVs):  Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex, Rt. 543, Florence, NJ  (609) 499-5300.
Dropoff is open:  Monday thru Friday, 7:30am to 4:30pm.  Saturdays:  7:30am to 1:30pm.  

A free recycling program operated by Burlington County is in force within the Township on a bi-weekly basis.   All recyclables must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on pick-up day.

Motor oil recycling is temporarily discontinued at the township facility.  Fortunately, motor oil recycling is available free-of-charge at most service stations and automotive parts supply chains.  The township is investigating ways to bring back motor oil recycling at some point, but the costs of disposal have increased drastically.  In addition, collection companies are citing contamination of oil as a major issue facing most municipal collection sites.  Uncontrolled access to dispose of oil is a leading cause of contamination when liquids other than motor oil have been found in past collections.

For Chesterfield Township Residents only, tree branches, brush and leaves can be disposed of in clearly marked areas  at the Recycling Center at the rear of the old Municipal Building (300 Bordentown-Chesterfield Rd).  Please - No Contractors or Businesses.

Recycling is the Law.  Residents, tenants, landlords, businesses and schools MUST recycle.
Recycling Dates can be found on the Township Calendar Page and on the front page.   


Recycling has been declining statewide but in Burlington County our residential recycling numbers continue to rise!  With residents help, we can do more to meet our goal of 50% recycling rate.
