Recycling

NOTICE: Due to the Labor Day holiday, Monday, September 4th's recycling collection will be postponed until Tuesday, September 5th. Kindly place your recyclable items curbside on Monday evening, so they can be collected on Tuesday morning.

Recyclables should be placed in a container with a lid, or clear recycling bags, and cardboard boxes should be tied or taped together. This will ensure all recyclables are collected; together, let’s keep Maplewood clean.

 
Recycling is an important step towards Maplewood’s goals of becoming a greener place to live, work and play.  Additionally, improving recycling help to reduce waste disposal costs. Following is a list of items to assist in improving everyone’s recycling efforts:

NEW JERSEY’S 2017 RECYCLING POETRY CONTEST

Students – Act On Your Commitment to Recycling by Inspiring Others!

This April marks the 30th anniversary of New Jersey's Statewide Mandatory Source Separation and Recycling Act, which established a recycling mandate and made New Jersey a national recycling leader. New Jersey was the first state in the country to implement such a law and we are still one of the top recyclers in the country.

To celebrate this milestone, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is sponsoring New Jersey's 2017 Recycling Poetry Contest.

Young writers in grades 4 through 6 are challenged to submit original poems (100 words or less) that inspire and motivate citizens of all ages to recycle their waste at home, school, work and in the community.

Four winning poems per grade level will be selected by DEP as winners. These poems will be used as part of DEP’s future statewide recycling outreach efforts, which will include various print and online media.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 2. 

Please go to www.nj.gov/dep/seeds/rpc2017.htm for submission requirements, entry form and other important information. Questions about the contest should be directed to DEP employee Victoria Kerekes at (609) 984-6906 or .
