CHATHAM, NJ – The Borough recently took delivery of a covered 35-yard recycling container from the Morris County MUA. Chatham Borough is one of three municipalities to receive such a container in Morris County.

This container, built in Waterbury, Conn., is designed to make it much easier for those using the Recycling Depot on Summit Avenue, to load their recyclables in one of the eight access doors located on each side of the container. These access doors are approximately 4 1/2 feet off the ground, making reaching the container much more manageable.

Mayor Bruce A. Harris noted that “Chatham Borough is the leading recycling community in Morris County with a recycling rate of 74.1% with the next closest community coming in at 60%” “We are very proud of how serious our residents take recycling”.

“This forest green container, manufactured by East Coast Containers, will protect the contents from the elements and reduce the possibility of the load becoming contaminated by rain, snow, ice and non-recyclables being deposited inappropriately in the container” says Kathleen Hourihan of the Morris County MUA.

The Morris County MUA reminds residents to refer to the single stream recycling guidelines posted at the Chatham Borough Recycling Depot or refer to page 25 of the Borough’s Calendar. All materials should be loaded loose except for shredded paper.
