UNION COUNTY, NJ - A free Countywide scrap metal recycling event is scheduled to be held on Saturday, April 21 in Rahway and Cranford.  

A wide variety of metal goods, from household appliances to gutters and sheds, are included in the program.

“This countywide program helps to fill a service gap in some Union County municipalities that currently have no pickup for scrap metal recycling,” said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados. “As a community, we benefit across the board by recycling more, and throwing away less waste, and making the most of our resources.”

·         Cranford: Emergency Services/Traffic Enforcement, 151 Kenilworth Blvd.

·         Rahway: Service Yard in Rahway Park (near pool), St. Georges Avenue.
