NexTrex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge
Bordentown Township is participating in the NexTrex Plastic Film Recycling Challenge. Participate in this community program by reading additional information below. The challenge is accepting materials now.
Please bring your plastic bags to the township recycling facility. The township will receive credit for the weight of the plastic AND has a chance to win a Trex bench. Please note that mailing labels must be removed from plastic envelopes, and the items must be 100% plastic material (no stickers and such). Items should be dry, clean, and have no residue (other than tape).
Bordentown Township’s Recycling facility is next to Derby Firehouse inside our Public Works. Weekly hours are:
Monday – Friday: 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. (Please visit front office first)
Saturday: 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Please go straight to the recycling yard)
Items that can be recycled: grocery bags, bread bags, case overwrap, dry cleaning bags, newspaper sleeves, ice bags, wood pellet bags, Ziploc & other re-sealable bags, produce bags, bubble wrap, salt bags, plastic shipping envelopes, pallet wrap and stretch film, and cereal bags. All materials must be clean, dry, and free of food residue.
