Repurpose Reuse Recycle
Below is some information and frequently asked questions regarding recycling, provided by the State of NJ.
What is dual stream and single stream recycling?
Dual stream recycling and single stream recycling are both recyclable materials collection systems, but with one important difference. In dual stream programs, bottles, cans and other containers are collected separately in one recycling bucket, while paper grades are collected separately in another recycling bucket. In single stream programs, bottles, cans, and other containers, as well as paper grades are all collected together in one recycling bucket. Both systems are utilized in New Jersey, but single stream systems are more prevalent because they are typically found to be more convenient and thus tend to result higher participation rates.
Should I put plastic shopping bags in my recycling can?
No. While plastic shopping bags are recyclable, they should not be put into your container. These bags jam up the processing equipment at recycling centers just like hair jams up the rollers on vacuum cleaners. Plastic bags should instead be recycled separately through programs established in supermarkets.
When I am not sure about whether something is recyclable, should I add it to my recycling anyway?
When you are not sure about whether a material should be put recycled, it is recommended that you check with your local recycling program about your town or county’s recycling program requirements so that you do not unknowingly “contaminate” your load of recyclable materials with unacceptable materials. Such contamination creates serious quality control issues and negatively affects the economics of recycling. It is undoubtedly one of the biggest challenges facing recycling today.
What do those numbers (surrounded by arrows) on the bottom of plastic products mean?
The numbers found on the bottom of plastic products are resin identification codes that were established by the plastics industry to help consumers identify the plastic type of various containers and products. It was hoped that this code would make it easier for consumers to identify whether and how to recycle various plastic products and packaging. The resin identification code is as follows:
01 PET – Polyethylene terephthalate (examples: soda and water bottles)
02 HDPE – High-density polyethylene (examples: milk bottles and detergent bottles)
03 PVC – Polyvinyl chloride (examples: juice bottles, cling films, and piping)
04 LDPE – Low-density polyethylene (examples: squeezable bottles and frozen food bags)
05 PP – Polypropylene (examples: yogurt containers, margarine tubs, disposable cups and plates)
06 PS – Polystyrene (examples: egg cartons, packing peanuts, disposable cups and plates)
07 O (Other) – Often Polycarbonate or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) (examples: baby milk bottles and electronic casing)
It is important to know which specific types of plastics are collected in your local recycling program so that you do not unknowingly “contaminate” your load of recyclable materials with unacceptable materials.
