One response to “Sussex County, NJ

  1. I just started using the recycling center about 3 months ago. Paying for private waste pick-up was getting too costly. I have been to the faclity at least 6 times so far. I have never seen such a nice, helpful, respectful group of employees! Even at 2pm, after dealing with the public for 7 hours, your workers are kind and courteous. Your facility is clean, the operation from start to finish is smooth and efficient. Even as a newcomer, I was able to very quickly move through the process and get back on the road. You are all, from top to bottom, to be commended.
