As mentioned during the last Borough of Hopatcong Council meeting, the DPW has stepped up to help residents since the Recycling Center will be closed until at least June 1, 2020 due to social distancing requirements.

Ron Tappan 04 29 2020 Movie CoverBorough Administrator Ron Tappan provided details about the new program during his section of the Council meeting, as shown in the following Zoom Webinar video.

Note: To help clarify questions that we have already received after the meeting, we believe the following is correct.

    • This is for BRUSH ONLY, and not everything you would bring to the Recycling Center
    • You should create a separate curbside spot away from your standard Recycling/Trash
    • The Sussex County Recycling Center remains open for everything else

Hopatcong Lake Regional News reached out to Mr. Tappan this afternoon for further clarification and we’ll share his answer when received.

Official Announcement from the Borough:

Due to the CDC Guidelines we are not able to operate our Recycling Center. To make things easier for our residents, we will be picking up brush curbside from May 4th to June 1st.

This is a service that we do not normally offer however, it is the only thing at our center that is not offered for a curbside pick-up. When the Recycling Center reopens, we will not continue the curbside service. We will reevaluate the guidelines prior to June 1st and come to a decision on when to reopen the Center.

The following are the requirements for our residents:

  • Brush must be brought to the curb. We will not go on anyone’s property to remove any brush.
  • Nothing larger than 6 inches in diameter will be accepted.
  • No tree stumps allowed
  • Pick up will be done once a week for the month of May.

Please do not hesitate to call our offices to ask any questions you may have. 973-770-1200 ext. 401

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during these difficult times.
