    RECYCLING GENERATES $30,685 IN REVENUE FOR BERKELEY TOWNSHIP - Mayor Amato is pleased to report during the six month period between July 1, 2016 through Dec. 31, 2016, Berkeley Township collected 2,210 tons of recyclables as part of our Recycling Revenue Sharing program with Ocean County. The payout per ton for this period was $13.88. Berkeley Township received AS ITS SHARE, $30,685 in revenue. Out of the 33 Towns in Ocean County, Berkeley Township was the 6th highest in revenue generated.

    The 2,210 tons of recycling is up 25% from the same time frame just three years ago. I know as a community we can do better. As a reminder, we converted to Single Stream Recycling a few years ago. This means that Bottles & Cans; Newspaper; Mixed Paper; Cardboard all go in the same container.

    Acceptable Bottles: Plastic containers where the neck is smaller than the base of the container i.e. beverage, shampoo, laundry detergent, milk jugs, condiments. Cans: aluminum, steel, tin and empty aerosol cans. Paper: newspapers, mixed papers, corrugated cardboard.

    Keep in mind for every ton we recycle we save $81.00 in tipping fees at the landfill. In return we receive 50% of the profits from the County in recycling revenue. Let’s all “pitch in” and do our part to recycle, reduce land fill costs and generate additional revenue for Berkeley Township! .....Click Here for Recycling Guidelines
