MONMOUTH COUNTY – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders are announcing the launch of “Rocky’s Rules for Recycling,” a video series that seeks to educate residents about sorting mandated recyclable materials in Monmouth County. 

“I am very excited about sharing ‘Rocky’s Rules for Recycling’ through this video series where residents can watch and learn what should be recycled in Monmouth County,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the County’s Recycling and Solid Waste Planning. “Recycling rules change over the years and it can be hard to keep up. Our hope is that these short videos will educate in a fun and memorable way.” 

In the first video, Rocky explains that 60 million plastic bottles find their way to landfills and incinerators daily. To reduce waste and properly dispose of mandated materials, Rocky offers the County’s guidelines for recycling plastic bottles.

“Recycling Rocky wants you to look for the recycle symbol on the label or the bottom of the bottle,” said Director Arnone. “Bottles that have a number one or two should be recycled, with the cap, to ensure that the appropriate items go to the recycling facility.”
