Did You Know?

Aluminum cans should not be flattened in your recycling can.   Automatic sorting machines separates out two dimensional or “flat” materials (paper) from three dimensional materials.   The equipment will automatically sort flattened materials as paper.

  •  Recyclables should not be placed in plastic bags.
  • If collection day falls on a holiday (Christmas, New Years Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving) collection will be the following Saturday.
  • Call for information at 609-278-8086.
  • If your recycling pick up was accidentally missed fill out and submit the Missed Recycling Form and they will work to correct the problem.
