Trex Recycling Program
The township started a six month partner program with Trex from 5/1/2022 until 11/01/2022. Moorestown Township collected about 550 pounds of plastic in that time frame. The Township received a new Trex Bench which is currently in the lobby of the Moorestown Library. The township is now on its second collection period which is from 11/1/2022 until 5/1/2023 we have couple drop off points in the town and it is only certain types of plastic.
There are Trex Collection bins at Public Works, Town Hall, Library and the Recreation Center which we collect and weigh. Learn more at: https://nextrex.com/view/programs. View Trex Recyclable items here.
