The Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority (MUA) has asked that Borough residents refrain from using plastic bags for curbside recycling collection. The same request has been made for recycling brought to the Borough’s Recycling Center. The primary issue facing the MUA is plastic bags get caught up in the separating machinery at the plant. Additionally plastic bags are not recyclable.
It is recommended that residents use in expensive cans for curbside recycling collection. Labels are available at the Municipal Building to identify cans to be used for recycling.
Curbside recycling occurs every other Monday. The Recycling Center, located on Flanders Road, is open Wednesday from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon and Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. For more information regarding Netcong’s recycling program visit our recycling page.
