***Single Stream Recycling Alert***

Important Message from the Borough's garbage collector: The quality of the single stream recycling collection in the Borough of Shrewsbury has caused an extreme increase in the cost each month. Effective immediately, we will enforce a zero-tolerance policy for contaminated single stream we collect curbside in the communities we serve. Single stream recycling is to consist of cardboard, newspaper, bottles, cans and plastics (1-7) – none of which can be contaminated with food waste and most importantly the single stream recycling is to be loose – NO PLASTIC BAGS AT ALLWe (De Lisa) will be leaving all single stream containers we find in violation of these simple rules especially that in PLASTIC BAGS.
