Single Stream Recycling
Recycling has never “BIN” easier!
Did you ever wish you could put all your recyclable items in one container without sorting? Well, now you can! Single stream recycling means that all items that are acceptable for curbside recycling can be put together in one bin.
Recycling will be picked up once every 2 weeks, which means fewer trucks on our
roads – an added environmental benefit of going single stream.
Many new items can be put in your recycling bin including cardboard and junk mail! And you no longer need to tie up your newspapers! For a full list of items that are now accepted for curbside pick-up, please click below to see the Recycling Guidelines.

You Do A Lot of Good When you Recycle!
Recycling reduces the emissions of many greenhouse gases and water pollutants, saves energy, supplies valuable raw materials to industry, creates jobs, stimulates the development of greener technologies, generates less solid waste, conserves resources for future generations, and reduces the need for new landfills and combustors.
Manalapan Township is proud of the active role it takes in helping the environment. It is easier than ever to recycle at your curb now and you can use our centrally-located Recycling Drop-Off Center to recycle many items that you cannot place at the curb.
Citizens are required to recycle and we absolutely encourage every family to recognize the importance of this civic responsibility. Not only does recycling benefit our environment, but it provides additional funds for the township thereby helping to reduce your taxes.
