Robbinsville Township is a township in Mercer County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the township population was 10,275.

The official changeover took place January 1, 2008, as signs and other items with Washington on them began to be changed.[6]

Robbinsville Township was incorporated as Washington Township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 15, 1859, from portions of East Windsor Township.[7]
