Denville Recycling Regulations

 

RECYCLING REQUIREMENTS FOR DENVILLE BUSINESSES

 

Mandatory recycling began in New Jersey following the enactment of the New Jersey Statewide Mandatory Source Separation and Recycling Act in 1987. In Denville, the Governing Body of the Township of Denville adopted an ordinance on April 28, 2008 making recycling mandatory for both residential and commercial establishments located in Denville.

 

Each property owner, business, multi-family dwelling and institution must be able to demonstrate their recycling program is active, current and effective.

 

The Township of Denville shall be conducting courtesy visits to commercial businesses, multi-family dwelling complexes and other institutions throughout the municipality during the months of June and July 2011 to review the effectiveness of their recycling programs.

 

Please note that the use of recycling containers, posters/signage and collection of recyclables shall be stressed. Container(s) must be clearly visible and signage must indicate the establishment's recycle program. Multi-containers may be required for larger establishments, offices and multi-family dwelling complexes. In advance of these visits, businesses, multi-family dwelling complexes and institutions should review www.denvillenj.org/recycling.php for program details and guidelines.
