 Start the new year recycling!  Not sure how to recycle? 

Plastics (milk jugs, shampoo bottles, detergent bottles, vitamin bottles, plastic soda and water containers etc. Our center now accepts those plastics labeled with the 1 , 2, 5 and 6 symbols. These can generally be found molded into the bottom of the containers. (see picture).  If you can't identify the type of plastic, don't include it. Read the instructions on the back of your recycling calendar for more information. 

Recycling bins are available at the Township office.  If there has never been one issued to your address, the first one is free.  Any additional bins are $8.00.  If you have one "official" Waste Management bin, you can use other containers along with it such as laundry baskets, waste bins, etc.
