Recycling Drop-Off Center Re-Opens in South Edison

August 4, 2014 at 12:45 PM

EDISON, NJ - South Edison’s recycling drop-off center has now reopened for public use, township officials announced. The center was temporarily closed for upgrades.

“Reopening the Meadow Road recycling drop-off center is a convenience for our South Edison residents and it will certainly help our local environment,” Mayor Tom Lankey said. “Recycling household items is one of the most important things that people and families can do to benefit our community.”

The South Edison recycling drop-off center, at 471 Meadow Road is open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, according to Public Works Director Jeff Roderman. This reopening comes a month after Edison opened a new North Edison recycling drop-off site at the Minnie Veal Community Center on Grove Avenue in response to residents’ requests.

Area residents may drop off the same recyclables they customarily put into their household recycling bins for curbside collection. These include newspapers, magazines, mixed paper, flattened cardboard, food containers, tin, aluminum and bimetal cans, glass jars and bottles, and plastics stamped with #1–7 recycle codes.

Curbside recyclable collections will continue as usual, but the Meadow Road drop-off center is available for residents who miss their collection days or who accumulate a quantity of recyclables between collections, Roderman said.

Edison is providing “single-source” recycling bins at the Meadow Road drop-off site and the new facility behind Minnie Veal, meaning that residents do not need to presort their household recyclables before dropping them off.
