About Single Stream Recycling
Single Stream Recycling allows residents to mix recyclable paper, plastic and glass in one container. This method of curbside recycling is more convenient for residents because it requires no sorting of items. This recycling process allows all cardboard to be included with newspapers, junk mail, cans, glass bottles (any colors) and jars, and plastics (#1 through #7). Cardboard materials include corrugated cardboard, pizza boxes, cereal boxes, juice cartons/boxes, milk cartons, pasta and cracker boxes and cartons from beer and soda. Containers do not have to be flattened. Large cardboard boxes may be placed next to your recycle container. Residents will see trash trucks with recycle symbols on them collecting the recyclables. Rest assured the recycled materials are going to the recycling facility, NOT the trash-to-steam plant.
It is estimated in Haverford Township alone that more than 8,000 tons of potential recycling material is thrown into the trash stream annually. Each year, Haverford Township collects about 4,500 tons of residential recycling materials.Currently, recycling makes up about 16% of the total tons of waste each year.We definitely can do better. Removing 8,000 tons of recycling materials from entering the trash stream and adding it to the recycling stream would save Haverford Township over $200,000 a year.In 2009, it will cost Haverford Township residents $30.00 pet ton to dump solid waste.Avoiding additional trash disposal fees is only part of the solution.Helping protect the environment is the best part.Make a difference!Help do your part to preserve the environment for you and your children.All it takes is a few moments to separate recycled material from trash.The Township will do the rest.
