Residents may use a recycling container (or multiple containers) of choice no larger than 33-gallons.  Containers are to be marked for recycling.  Stickers are available at the Borough office at no cost.  DO NOT place recyclables in plastic bags in your recycle bin.  Recyclables must be kept un-bagged and loose in the recycle bin.

 

Acceptable recycling materials are as follows:

  • Corrugated cardboard – This includes any size material consisting of a fluted corrugated sheet, like shipping boxes or packing boxes. Flatten all boxes and remove packaging including Styrofoam, peanuts, bubble wrap and plastic liners.  DO NOT put paperboard (cereal boxes, shoe boxes) in the recycling container.  All corrugated cardboard must be flattened and kept dry.
  • Plastic bottles & jugs with necks – This includes plastic bottles, jars, jugs and anything else with a neck smaller than its base. Throw away the lid and rinse out any residue.  All other plastic material is considered trash.  Ignore the numbers, as they do not indicate if something is recyclable.  Do not put plastic bags, toys, buckets, packaging, Styrofoam, hosing, furniture, or other plastic items in the bin.
