Quick guide for developing an effective and compliant recycling program.
1.Wherever you have a litter receptacle be sure to have a recycling receptacle adjacent to it. The recycling receptacle must be clearly marked or labeled. This applies to litter receptacles inside and outside.
2.Have a dedicated dumpster or holding container for recycling materials in your waste storage area to hold recyclables for pick up.
3.Contract for pick up with your waste hauler
4.Educate your staff regarding the requirements and post signage in your establishment that explains the recycling procedures.
5.Contact your town’s recycling coordinator for more information regarding their local ordinance. Important notes:

Recycling is not a volunteer activity. It is the law and fines can range from $100.00 to $3,000.00 per day for non compliance. All commercial entities must have a recycling plan in place.

By removing recyclables from your waste stream you will lessen the weight of your trash. Doing so may save money on your trash removal services. Check with your waste hauler for more details.

EVERY HOUSEHOLD, BUSINESS, SCHOOL, HOSPITAL AND ANY OTHERINSTITUTION IS REQUIRED TO RECYCLE BY STATE LAW. FOR FURTHER INFO PLEASE CALL 732-928-1200 X 1267
