On December 7, 2019, the Northfield Police Department will once again be teaming up with The Egg Harbor Township Police Athletic League and other law enforcement agencies throughout Atlantic County to bring the 9th Annual Shop With A Cop to our area.

Shop With A Cop is a one day event where police officers and volunteers assist children in need with their holiday shopping, free of charge to the child and their families.

Shop With A Cop is not just about taking the children shopping. It’s about making them feel loved during a very special time of the year, while creating memories and a bond with local police officers. Children will be provided breakfast and will have a chance to visit and talk with police officers from throughout Atlantic County. The most exciting part of the day will not be the shopping, but a police and fire vehicle parade with lights and sirens from the EHT Community Center to Walmart Mays Landing. These are memories that will last a lifetime for some of the neediest children in our area!

At a cost of $111 per child, our goal is to collectively host at least 150 children and their families. We would like to extend to you an invitation to make a contribution to the 2019 EHT PAL Shop With A Cop event. Any assistance you can provide is welcome and greatly appreciated, and will lead us toward our goal of raising the needed $16,650. 100% of your donation is going to help children and families in your area have a merrier Christmas.

If you would like to donate Please make checks payable to EHT PAL, and note Shop With A Cop in the memo. Donations can be dropped off at the Northfield Police Department 1600 Shore Rd. to the attention of Sgt. DiMarco.

Thank you in advance. Happy Holidays!

The Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) and the City of Northfield are working together to improve recycling in Northfield and are kicking off a new initiative in your neighborhood.

ACUA’s recycling guidelines have recently been modified due to global changes in recycling markets. Recycling programs across the country are challenged to improve the quality of recycling to meet more stringent requirements from the companies that purchase recycling to make new products.

Many people want to do the right thing, but don’t always know what should be included in their recycling, and this program is intended to help people understand what should and shouldn’t be recycled.

Trained volunteers working under the supervision of ACUA employees and Northfield Public Works staff will be visiting your neighborhood over the coming weeks on your recycling day. Staff and volunteers will visually inspect recycling carts before collection and provide feedback to residents using tags that identify common contaminants.

On your recycling day, small teams of staff and volunteers will be on the street prior to recycling pickup. They will not be sorting through your recycling but will simply look into the recycling bucket or will lift the lid of the recycling cart, to inspect what is visible on the surface. Based on what they see, they will mark a tag and attach it to the bucket or cart to provide feedback to residents. Data from each home will be recorded.

The goals of the inspection program are to identify some of the most common recycling mistakes and contaminants, to measure the effectiveness of informational “tags” on recycling behavior changes and to provide information and feedback to residents.

Residents will not be fined for mistakes, and your recycling will be collected as usual. This initiative is intended to provide information and to improve recycling. We hope the information provided is helpful and thank you for your participation.

The ACUA has announced that they recently installed a shredded paper drop-off container at their Egg Harbor Township Environmental Park for residents to recycle their shredded material.

Shredded paper cannot be collected curbside because it is too small to be processed at the ACUA sorting facility, and bags of the material are often torn or damaged during collection, releasing small pieces of paper that cannot be collected.

When collected separately in the specially designated bin, the shredded paper is contained and can be baled for recycling.

Information on drop-off is available on their website using the link provided here.
