Cardboard Recycling Preparation
If cardboard was used for shipping, you must remove any shipping materials such as packing peanuts, plastic bags and bubble wrap.
Boxes must be flattened and tied, or they will not be picked up.
For boxes that contained large items, you must fold or cut the cardboard box in half. It must fit in your recycling container or be tied at the curb.
For boxes that are food-soiled (such as pizza boxes), cut out any oil stains before recycling. Food soiled cardboard doesn’t have a recycling market.
Go to www.MonmouthBeach.org or the App store to get your free
The Recycle Coach link (https://recyclecoach.com/) will notify you of the schedule changes.
We thank the Monmouth Beach Residents for your help

Why Recycle ?
It has economic and environmental benefits. All this “stuff” no longer goes into landfills. As much as possible, it’s re-manufactured into new products-glass reshaped, newspaper remade as paper; plastic drinking containers become lumber. Recycling saves resources and raw materials.
It costs you nothing. It sells the “stuff”. Not at a profit, but it saves the borough dumping fees at the County landfill, and makes our recycling self-financing.
It’s the law. Violators are subject to penalties, including fine, jail and/or community service. It’s a violation if you put recyclables in with regular garbage. At the County Reclamation Center all garbage is dumped on the floor and if they find recycling the Borough gets fined.
