If your neighbors have carts and you don't, contact your municipality. Areas without carts are noted below.
No; you should put all your recyclables into your cart.
Keep plastic bags out of recycling buckets and carts. Plastic bags cause big trouble for single stream recycling systems. Recycle plastic bags at supermarkets or stores such as Lowes, Home Depot, Target, etc. Burlington County Park rangers will accept clean dry plastic bags for reuse at the park's pet waste stations.
Again, not having to separate recyclables adds convenience. Studies show single stream brings with it an increase of 10% or more in recycling. The more we recycle, the less we need to landfill. Last year, recycling saved the towns more than $3.2 million in landfill tipping fees. Those cost-savings are effectively tax savings, since they improve the bottom line of municipal budgets.
Burlington County is proud of its recycling program. The cost of the program is included in tipping fees – with no additional costs to the towns. In addition, the program is operated through the Occupational Training Center of Burlington County and provides jobs to individuals with disabilities. No other county in New Jersey can make that claim.
