NORTHFIELD AND ACUA PARTNER IN RECYCLING INSPECTION PILOT PROGRAM
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.

ACUA ANNOUNCES SHREDDED PAPER DROP-OFF
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.
