MUA Issues Guidelines for Proper Preparation of Shredded Paper
The Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority has issued new guidelines for the proper preparation of shredded paper in those municipalities that participate in the MCMUA’s “all-in-one” single-stream curbside recycling collection program.
The guidelines, which apply to Boonton, Boonton Township, Chatham Township, Chester Borough, Denville, East Hanover, Florham Park, Hanover, Mendham Borough, Mendham Township, Mine Hill, Morris Plains, Netcong, Rockaway Borough and Wharton, are designed to make the recycling process more efficient, said Kathleen Hourihan, Morris County recycling coordinator.
Hourihan stressed the only plastic bags that are to be put into recycling receptacles in the “all-in-one” single-stream curbside municipalities are those containing shredded paper. “We will greatly appreciate everyone following the new guidelines, which will result in a much higher quality of recyclable material,” she added.
More information about recycling is available online on the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority website, http://www.mcmua.com/, or by calling the MCMUA at 973-285-8395.
The Town of Boonton Department of Public Works is responsible for providing many of the services that residents come to rely on daily. Additionally, the Department administers the Town’s waste water collection and treatment plant.
