Recycling Information Packet
As a community, we all must be committed to protecting and improving the environment by recycling commonly used materials. The Borough recycles not only because it is sound policy, easy to do, and helps the environment, but also because it reduces disposal cost and demonstrates South Toms River’s commitment to sustainable practices. Please review the RECYCLING INFORMATION PACKET materials explaining how to take care of your recycling container, in addition to what is allowed to be placed into your recycling container. Your recycling will continue to be picked up on the normal recycling schedule.
