This Brigade is exclusively for Hamilton, NJ residents.
Recycle your chip bags with TerraCycle®. TerraCycle is challenging the community of Hamilton, NJ to make a positive impact on the environment by diverting chip bags from landfill. All chip bags that are collected will be given a second life and recycled into unique products ranging from garbage bins to watering cans.
Join TerraCycle and eliminate the idea of waste by collecting empty chip bags to help your community and Chip in for Change!
How you can Chip in for Change.
There are two ways that you can join your community in diverting chip bags from landfill. You can drop off your chip bags at one of the Chip in for Change drop-off locations or you can send in your chip bags from home. Recycling chip bags through TerraCycle is completely free, no matter how you choose to participate.
Chip in for Change Drop-Off Locations.
You will be able to drop off your chip bags at an official Chip in for Change collection station. Click here to see our interactive map of drop-off locations in Hamilton Township.

For every 50,000 chip bags collected at the official Chip in for Change collection locations, $250 will be donated by TerraCycle to a Hamilton organization. Each participating Chip in for Change collection location will be entered into a drawing, and the winner will choose the recipient of the $250 donation.
