East Brunswick Recycling Changes - Effective December 2nd

Recycling materials must be clean, empty and loose in all recycling containers or dumpsters. The resident/business is responsible to provide acceptable recycled materials in this manner. All plastic bags are not one of the acceptable materials for recycling. This applies to all methods of disposal; residential curbside, multi-family containers and the Township Recycling Center. Effective December 2, 2019 material that is placed in plastic bags or with plastic bags will be grounds for rejection and will not be collected. Plastic bags placed in the recycling stream are not recovered during processing. The bags jam and delay the processing equipment which lead to increased disposal costs or rejection at the material recovery facility.
The resident/business will be responsible to mitigate the source of rejection. The acceptable material may be disposed of at the Township Recycling Center or put out for the next collection date. Plastic bags may be brought back to participating stores that accept plastic bags. 
Thank You for your anticipated cooperation.
