Burlington County Services

Burlington County offers a broad range of services; many are offered in cooperation with other agencies or local government. In recent years, the County has been regarded as a statewide leader in “shared services” by engaging in cost-saving initiatives with the towns, school districts and other local government entities.

For example, the curbside recycling program is administered by the County; however, recycling buckets should be requested from your local municipal government office. While local governments are responsible for animal control, the County’s animal shelter takes in strays from all of the towns.

County administrative offices are located at 49 Rancocas Road in Mount Holly, the county seat. The mailing address is P.O. Box 6000, Mount Holly, NJ 08060. Telephone (609) 265-5020. Fax (609) 702-7000. The official county Web site is www.co.burlington.nj.us.
