Montclair Promotes Recycling Efforts in Parks PDF Print E-mail

Montclair Second Ward Councilor Robin SchlagerMontclair has a long history of environmental stewardship and is stepping up efforts by distributing 100 recycling bins throughout all its municipal parks.

The Township was not simply an early adopter, but  truly led the way for recycling in the U.S.

Resident Jean Clark created the town’s original recycling program in 1972 -- a volunteer-run drop-off program for newspapers, glass, and steel or aluminum cans. In 1978 the volunteers purchased collection vans for the town, and Montclair initiated the state’s first mandatory curbside collection program. This was almost a decade before the “New Jersey Mandatory Recycling Act” was created in 1987, which in turn was the nation’s very first statewide recycling law.

A new step has been taken to expand recycling capability in town. Through the combined efforts of Second Ward Councilor Robin Schlager and Craig Brandon, Department of Community Services Supervisor of Solid Waste Management, the Township purchased 100 recycling bins and placed them in all municipal parks, so that residents and visitors can drop their recyclable bottles and cans in them instead of throwing everything away in the public garbage cans.

“Wherever there’s a refuse bin, there’s now also a recycling bin right next to it,” said Mr. Brandon.

“Recycling not only contributes toward protecting our environment and conserving natural resources, it also helps our economy by reducing the amount of waste that needs to go to the landfill or an incinerator,” said Councilor Schlager. “I’m very pleased the Township is providing residents and visitors a convenient means for disposing of their recyclables in our parks.”

Department of Community Services staff will collect the recyclables on a weekly basis.
