In response to the escalating costs the Borough incurs to process recycling materials, the drop-off recycling center on Jersey Ave. operated by Metuchen DPW, will close operations on 9/30/18. Effective 10/1/18 recycling materials will not be accepted at the drop-off center. This change is needed to minimize the financial impact of the drastic changes in the recycled materials market primarily caused by China’s decision to stop accepting recycled materials from the US and other countries. Closing the drop-off center will ensure that Metuchen taxpayers will not be paying to process recycled materials dropped off by non-residents, contractors and businesses who were using the drop-off center.
