SINGLE-STREAM RECYCLING COMES TO MENDHAM BOROUGH
 
Single-stream recycling is now available in Mendham Borough.
Single-stream recycling means that all bottles, cans and paper may be mixed together and placed in the same curbside recycling bin, according to Penny Jones, Recycling Education Specialist with the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority.
            In addition, new items now being accepted for recycling are clean aluminum pie plates, trays and foil; plastic containers, which include bottles and non-bottles coded            #1 PETE , #2 HDPE, #4 LDPE, #5 PP, and #7 OTHER; boxes used for liquids and frozen food, such as soup boxes, drink boxes and milk and juice cartons; and cardboard packaging used for soda, juice or beer typically in 6 or 12-packs, Jones said.                                          The numbers for the plastic containers are found inside the triangular recycling symbol that is stamped on the bottom of plastic containers.
            “It is important to note that neither plastics coded #3 V or #6 PS nor plastic bags of any kind are to be put into the curbside recycling bin,” Jones said.
            Residents, she said, should continue to recycle the items they have been recycling for quite some time, including aluminum cans; steel (tin) cans; glass bottles and jars; plastic bottles coded #1 PETE and #2 HDPE; newspapers, junk mail and magazines; chipboard such as  boxes used for cereal and facial tissue, and cardboard boxes that have been flattened.
These items may be put into the curbside recycling bin together with the newly accepted items, Jones said.
            Newspapers and cardboard boxes should not be tied.  If cardboard boxes are too large to fit into a curbside recycling bin, they should be flattened, folded and stacked inside one cardboard box and placed next to the recycling bin, Jones said.
The Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority will continue to collect the recyclables at curbside, after which they will be transported to the new ReCommunity single-stream recycling facility on Iron Mountain Road in Mine Hill. 
            For more information, residents may call the Mendham Borough Department of Public Works at 973-543-6535, or they may visit the Morris County MUA website, www.mcmua.com.
            Mendham Borough joins several other communities in Morris County, including Mendham Township, which now have single-stream recycling.
