Camden Township Recycling


Curbside recycling in conjunction with the Blue can trash collection is available from Allied/Republic Waste Services. Be sure recyclables are Empty, Clean and Dry before placing them in your recycling container. One dirty item can contaminate thousands of pounds of collected materials.
