Recycling is Now a 1-Step Process! No Sorting Required!

As of January 1, 2015 recycling is now a one step process.  Residents can mix all allowed recyclable materials together in the same recycling container. Plus, all plastic resin types, #1 – #7, are now recyclable (plastic #6 foam materials items must still be thrown away). 

Mix all allowed paper, glass, metal and plastics #1 – #7 recyclables together in your recycling container. Remember to empty and rinse all containers before recycling. Removing labels is not necessary. Throw plastic lids in the trash. Recycle metal lids. Flatten containers when possible. Empty, flatten and cut down cardboard boxes into pieces no larger than 2′ x 3′ and place in or under recycling container.

There is no longer a requirement to use official recycling bins. To easily hold the additional recyclables allowed in the program and get them to the curb, residents may use any plastic or metal 33 gallon or smaller container and label such with a “Recyclables Only” sticker or paint/mark a large letter “R” on the front. “Recyclables Only” stickers can be obtained at Township Hall in the Information Office.
