Please be advised that the recycling vendor has instituted a more stringent adherence to recycling regulations and guidelines. These are not new regulations or guidelines they simply have not been strictly enforced in the past.
- Recycling containers must be no larger than 32 gallons. More than one container is acceptable.
- Items must be loosely placed in the container. Empty or flat cardboard may be off to the side-no styrofoam, bubble wrap, plastic wrap or other package fillers.
- Plastic bags are not recyclable in single stream recycling and should not be in the container.
- Non single stream recycling items in your container may result in the vendor forgoing your pick-up.

Recycling is mandated by the State, County and Municipal Statutes.
Millstone Township must continue to recycle to meet aggressive recycling goals set by the state and county. As the Deputy Recycling Coordinator of the Township, my responsibility is to continue to strive to meet those goals by aggressively enforcing Township ordinances. Random inspections within the Township resulted in citations being issued for lack of compliance with Chapter 19, SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT, of the Revised General Ordinances, Township of Millstone. Some brief passages from this section follow:
"It shall be mandatory for all persons, who are owners, lessees, or occupants of residential property, to separate newspapers, glass bottles and jars, tin and bi-metal cans, plastic containers, aluminum cans, and corrugated cardboard as hereafter defined from all other solid waste produced by such residence for collection and ultimate recycling of materials."
"Solid waste" Solid waste shall mean and include all garbage and rubbish normally produced by the occupants of commercial, industrial and residential property and disposed of by private or public pick-up.
"Proof of collection service "Proof of collection service shall mean a written record, log, bill or document evidencing receipt of service for the collection of solid waste for the preceding month from a person lawfully engaging in private solid waste collection services within the Township.
"Violations and penalties. Any person, firm or corporation who violates or neglects to comply with any provision of this section or any rule or regulation promulgated pursuant thereto, shall be liable to the penalty stated in Chapter I, Section 1-5." (Fines could be as much as $2,000.00 for non-compliance)
Note: Court appearance may be required for summons.
I urge you to continue to do your part in keeping Millstone Township clean and to show that we are an "Environmentally Concerned Community".
