HAMILTON/ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- Be sure your recycling bin is full of the right items, or they won't be picked up. As of February 12, the Mercer County Improvement Authority (MCIA) began a strict enforcement of their recycling contamination policy. This new system and program will be phased in across county through the next several recycling collections.
If a bin contains any contaminants, it will be tagged with a red "Recycling Rejection Notice" and will not be collected. If the bin is tagged, residents need to bring the bins back to their property and correct the contaminants for the next scheduled recycling day.
A comprehensive list of items that can be recycled are listed on the MCIA webstite at www.mcianj.org/recycling. Residents also can contact the agency at (609) 278-8086 with questions.
