Pennington Farmers Market Collection

Saturday, June 27 (9 am – 1 pm) will be our first monthly upcycling/recycling collection event at the PFM in 2020. New protocols for attending the market, which is set up on the lawn outside Rosedale Mills store, are in effect (click for details). Thanks to a grant from Sustainable Jersey, several new types of items will be accepted: alkaline batteries, athletic balls, and pens/pencils/markers. Additionally, shaving razors and related packaging will be diverted from landfills. More information about our collection event is available here.
