New Recycling Regulations Imposed by the State, Effective Immediately

Due to recently imposed State regulations, effective immediately, plastic bags can no longer be accepted nor can they be dumped in the recycling bins at the Borough Yard. If recyclables are conveyed to the yard in a plastic bag, you must dump the recyclables into the bin; the plastic bag should be re-used by the resident or disposed of as trash.

Please use containers no larger than 32-gallon for the disposal of all recyclable material. Any recyclables that are placed in bags cannot be collected.

Pizza boxes are now considered trash due to the presence of food residue. They should be disposed of with household trash.

The Recycling Center is under video surveillance. Fines shall be issued for any illegal dumping.

The Mayor & Council appreciate your cooperation in this effort to comply with the new State Regulations.

Reminder: No Pick-Up on the 5th Wednesday of the Month
