Township reminding residents to keep plastic bags out of recycling

Press release from the Mantua Township Department of Public Works.

Putting plastic bags in your blue recycling bins is going to cost us more. It causes problems at the plant and will cost us more money to dispose of.

If you have plastic bags in your blue recycling bin, you may be tagged and the cart will not be picked up until the plastic bags are removed. We appreciate all those residents who are already complying with this policy and thank those that will be getting on board. If you have any questions, please give us a call at (856) 468-5175.

Additionally, plastic shopping bags may be recycled at larger retail stores such as Lowe’s, ShopRite or Target.
