Free Scrap Metal Recycling Drop-off Cancelled for August 6 Due to Storm Damage

Union County’s free scrap metal recycling program will not be held on Thursday, August 6, due to downed wires and other debris from Tropical Storm Isaias in Cranford and Rahway.

The program will resume on its regularly scheduled date of Saturday, August 15. Free scrap metal recycling is available to Union County residents at two drop-off locations:

· Cranford – Emergency Services Building at 151 Kenilworth Boulevard.

· Rahway – Rahway River Park, at the park maintenance yard.

Both locations are open for drop-offs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the first Thursday and third Saturday of each month, until November 21.

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-9, participants must wear face coverings, keep their windows closed, and stay in their vehicles at all times. Materials should be placed in the vehicle’s trunk, cargo area, or truck bed, easily accessible to staff, who will remove it from the vehicle.

A complete list of accepted scrap metals, and information on all Union County recycling programs, is available online at or call the Recycling Hotline, 908-654-9889.
