The Borough Needs Your Help in the Battle Against Recycling Contamination!

A contaminated recycling load costs $175 per ton to dispose of as opposed to $10 per ton for a clean recycling load. When non-recyclable items (contamination) end up in the recycling loads they have the potential to turn the entire load into trash, increasing processing costs and additional service charges.

  • PLASTIC BAGS - plastic bags and film get tangled in machinery.
  • FOOD SOILED ITEMS - soiled items will turn an entire load of recycling into trash (RINSE YOUR ITEMS)
  • WET PAPER-please try to keep your recyclables dry 
  • E-waste- E-waste can be recycled but NOT CURBSIDE please bring E-waste to DPW recycling yard
  • TANGLERS- Rubber hoses & wires can shut down an entire recycling center
  • HAZARDOUS MATERIAL- can cause serious injury to workers
In 2017 China began to limit the quantity of material it accepts for recycling and in 2018 added specific contamination limits.  The significant changes are affecting the recycling industry world-wide. As a result, our focus on quality is higher than ever, as we work to ensure long-term sustainability of our recycling programs.

Key points to keep in mind with plastic recyclables:
  • ALWAYS look for recycling sign indicating numbers 1 or 2
  • ALWAYS rinse out containers (plastic, glass & aluminum). 
  • NEVER place your recyclables in plastic bags when putting out for curbside collections
  • ALL recyclables MUST be in a clearly marked recycling container.

One of the easiest ways to help is to NOT put your recyclables
in plastic grocery bags or clear garbage bags.

eye safety

August is Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month

Along with school supplies and back to school clothing purchases, it’s time to make comprehensive eye exam appointments for the kids.  Keeping your children’s eyes safe is another part of maintaining healthy vision. Eye injuries are the leading cause of vision loss in children. There are about 42,000 sports related eye injuries every year in America and children suffer most of the injuries. Help prevent your child from being one of the more than 12 million children who suffer from vision impairment by remembering a few basic rules of safety:   All children should wear protective eyewear while participating in sports or recreational activities, purchase age-appropriate toys for your children and avoid toys with sharp or protruding parts.
