You must carefully follow the recycling guidelines.  You will need to try your cart collection for at least 2 full collections cycles; if one cart is not enough you may request an additional cart at 609-758-2522 x241 or email:  clerk@northhanovertwp.com. 





Effective Immediately:  The North Hanover Township Waste Facility is moving to Single Stream recycling.  This means you are no longer required to separate your RECYCLABLE ITEMS.  Please see the flyer here for guidance on Recyclable items.  We remind you NOT to mix household trash with your recycle material.

All residents are required to recycle their household trash. Residents are NOT required to have an annual sticker to recycle.  

Some items not accepted can be taken directly to the County Landfill and discarded.  Visit the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex Website for more information.
