Recycling Information

 Recycle Right' with the help of AVL Collects - The City of Asheville

FRIDAYS are Curbside Recycling Days in Chatham Borough. The Recycling Depot, located at 99 Summit Avenue, is open to the public Saturdays 9am-12 noon

The Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority (MUA) collects recyclable materials in Chatham Borough at curbside and recommends using 32-gallon containers with lids. Recyclable items can be comingled in the container for single-stream collection; however, the MUA does not accept plastic grocery store plastic bags with your recycling because these plastic bags jam the sorting mechanisms at the recycling facility. Plastic grocery store bags can be returned to the grocery store. Most grocery stores will accept them.

The Java Compost bin is relocating! Madison is relocating the Java Compost bin from the Recycle Center to Kings Road Lot (parking lot behind Public Safety Complex 62 Kings Road). This will allow residents in both Madison and Chatham to drop-off their compost 24/7/365 instead of only when the center is open.
