What Is Single-Stream Recycling?

Single-stream recycling allows residents to place all recyclables: cans, bottles and plastics together with newspapers, cardboard, and mixed paper in one container. There is no need to separate items since the “single stream” recycling process used allows all recyclables to be mixed together. Single-stream recycling will be collected by a compaction truck. Only recyclables will be on this truck on your recycling day, it cannot collect non-recyclable items.

Additional RECYCLING Containers

We want your household to recycle as much as possible. Recycling containers must be clearly labeled. A new trash information brochure was just mailed to every township resident the 3rd week of December. Included in the brochure was a recycling label. If you did not receive a brochure or need additional stickers, they are available at the township offices. Simply place the sticker onto a container and use it for collection. You can use any container up to 35 gallons as well as your existing recycling bin. Make sure that the recycling sticker is visible to the collection crew.

Bulk Items

  • One bulk item permitted per week on your second collection day of the week.
  • No construction or demolition debris!
  • Bulk items include things like a sofa, water heater, stove, Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers may contain cfcs (freon) and need special handling. Please call 1-800-432-1616 to schedule a pick up.
  • Carpets must be cut in three-foot strips, rolled and tied, up to ten rolls.
  • Mattress & box spring counts as one item.
