Mayor’s column: Thanks for recycling

Voorhees Township Public Works Department works hard to keep our neighborhoods, parks
and roads clean and safe. The Department’s mission is to provide and maintain quality public services and sustainable infrastructure to meet the needs of our community.

Our residents cooperate by using the recycling guidelines provided by the Department of
Public Works. Last year, the Department of Public Works collected 13,150.27 tons of recycling materials and 8,609.12 tons of solid waste (trash) from our residents.  60.43% of all residential waste collected was recycled.

By removing 13,150.27 tons of recycled materials from solid waste disposal, residents
helped Voorhees save $1,182,604 in trash disposal costs.  Thank you to all residents for
recycling! For more information about trash and recycling, visit their website:
