Mayor Dan Hayes would like to remind all residents that the township maintains an electronics recycling location at the township Public Works Facility at 411 Chimney Rock Road, Building A. 

Residents may bring electronic items to this location for disposal Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The electronic items are collected and recycled through a nationally certified recycling vendor at no direct cost to the Township. 

Use of the e-waste dumpster is open to the general public and not limited to just Bridgewater residents.

Under New Jersey law scrap electronics must be recycled statewide. Acceptable items for electronics recycling include: 

  • COMPUTERS (CPUs, desktops, mainframe/servers, laptops, monitors, keyboards, mice, scanners, printers, copiers, faxes, networking equipment, cables, wiring, adapters);
  • TELEVISIONS (CRT or Flat Screen);
  • TELEPHONES (cellular phones, telecom equipment, telephone handsets, fax machines);
  • AUDIO/ VIDEO (radios, home stereo, entertainment systems, speakers, DVD players, VHS video recorders, gaming units, controllers, test equipment and cameras).  

Additional items in the collection program include typewriters and microwaves. 

All computer systems, hard drives and electronic media will undergo a government approved electro-magnetic wiping system for the guaranteed removal of secure and proprietary information.   

For further information about the Electronics Recycling Program please feel free to contact the Township Recycling Coordinator by telephone at (908) 725-5750 or via email at health@bridgewaternj.gov.
