New Rules for Electronic Recycling in 2011
 
Good News! As of March 16, 2011 Mayor James P. Dodd and the Board of Aldermen are pleased to announce that the Town of Dover’s Department of Public Works will be collecting electronics at curbside and at our DPW/Recycling facility located at 211 North Sussex Street. The New Jersey Electronics Recycling Act mandates that as of January 1, 2011 all televisions; portable, desktop or personal computers; and computer monitors can no longer be disposed of in the landfill and that they be recycled. As part of an ongoing effort to make recycling of all mandated materials more convenient the following program has been developed.

Curbside Collection:
 
Curbside collection of the mandated items (televisions; portable, desktop or personal computers; and computer monitors) is available for all residents and small businesses. The cost for this service will be $5.00 per unit (computer CPU, keyboard and monitor are considered one unit). Tickets for these items will be sold from the Health Department and will be collected on Friday’s.
 
Municipal Recycling Center:
 
For those who don’t want to place these mandated items out at the curb, a container will be made available at the Town of Dover DPW/Recycling Center located at 211 North Sussex Street. There will be no cost for items delivered to the DPW/Recycling Center. In addition to the mandated items listed above, the Recycling Center will also accept the following items at no cost;
 
·        Desktop printers and printer / fax / copier / scanner combinations
·        Computer peripherals, including keyboards, mice, hard  drives, and other devices
·        Fax machines; and
·        DVD players, VCRs, and other video players (i.e., DVR’s)
