Some changes are coming to the way we recycle in Atlantic County. The most notable changes are with plastic bottles. Here is a Top 10 Items list as seen on the SNJ Article that outlines the upcoming changes.

Atlantic County residents should keep these Top 10 items out of their bins:

  1. Any plastic other than #1 or #2 bottles, jugs and containers that have smaller necks than bases
  2. Plastic bags (these should be recycled at local grocery stores instead)
  3. Take-out containers
  4. Single-use plates, cups, and utensils
  5. Plastic bottle caps and lids
  6. Foam or paper coffee cups
  7. Frozen-food boxes
  8. Batteries
  9. Hazardous materials like needles, light bulbs, or chemicals
  10. Liquids or food waste
