A MESSAGE FROM YOUR BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
MAYOR JOSEPH H. MANCINI, COMMISSIONER JOSEPH P. LATTANZI, & COMMISSIONER RALPH H. BAYARD
We hope you enjoy the 2019 Long Beach Township Recycling/Trash Calendar. This marks the 9th year for our calendar and this year’s theme is “Nature at Work.” The 2019 Calendar shows how nature recycles and how we can assist nature by keeping plastic pollution out of our waterways and oceans.
Long Beach Township has focused on the ever growing problem of plastic litter and marine debris. Starting in 2009, we installed several public “hydration stations” refilling stations for your reusable water bottles in order to reduce the use of single use plastic water bottles. We have installed monofilament recycling bins on the island to capture fishing line to keep from
tangling marine species.
Then in 2017, Long Beach Township passed an ordinance prohibiting the intentional release of helium inflated mylar or latex balloons into the atmosphere. In November 2017, an ordinance was passed to prohibit the distribution of single use plastic bags by businesses in Long Beach Township.
Plastic bags and plastic film are also detrimental to the County recycling equipment; they jam the machines and cause wasted time and money to remove. The other item that jams the machines is shredded paper; therefore, please DO NOT PUT RECYCLABLES IN PLAS TIC BAGS or SHREDDED PAPER IN SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING. Please follow the County information provided by Long Beach Township since they determine the items that are recyclable.
The Recycling Drop-Off Center is located at 7910 Long Beach Blvd., Beach Haven Crest and is open year round. The hours for the Drop-Off Center are listed in the calendar and also on our Township website at www.longbeachtownship.com. In addition, we have a Recycle Coach App available for your convenience; downloadable on both iPhone and Android.
If you have any questions contact Recycling and Trash at (609) 361-6676
Best wishes for a happy, healthy and safe New Year.
