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.
