Hoboken Single Stream Recyling Now Online

Below is another messgage from the folks at Green Hoboken.....

As you may be aware, Hoboken recently switched to a "single stream" recycling program which allows us to now mix recyclables AND take all plastics labeled 1 through 7. The attached flyers identify what can and cannot be recycled.

Please pass this on to all of your Hoboken neighbors and remind them that by recycling more we reduce our fees and increase our revenue, making Hoboken more sustainable financially and environmentally.

PLEASE NOTE THAT PLASTIC BAGS SHOULD NOT BE MIXED WITH RECYCLABLES. Most supermarkets have bins for recycling plastic bags near their entrance or exit.

These flyers will be available on the QLC's website and the City of Hoboken website for download.
