RECYLCING:  Recently the Borough has received several calls about recycling being mixed with the trash the Borough Manager has spoken with JP Mascaro regarding this matter. They use a conventional trash truck to pick up single stream recyclables the only thing that is placed in the truck are recyclables and they are then hauled to a sorting facility where they are separated. The trash is picked up in different truck and is hauled to the landfill. I have included a video below that shows the process.
