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.
What actually happens to all the recyclable materials?
Once the commingled recyclable materials are collected, they are then sent to a recycling center that uses both mechanization and hand-sorting to separate the different recyclable materials into their constituent parts. Non-recyclable material is also pulled out of the mix to the greatest extent possible during this process. The separated recyclable materials are then further processed to make them more market-ready. For example, paper and corrugated cardboard will be baled, as will aluminum cans while glass will be crushed.

The recyclable materials are then ready to be returned to the economic mainstream as raw materials where they will be used to make new (recycled content) products. For example, recyclable paper will be sent to paper mills where it will be made into new paper products, recyclable glass will be sent to manufacturing plants where it will be made into new glass containers or fiberglass, recyclable aluminum cans will be sent to production facilities where they will be made into new aluminum cans and other aluminum products and recyclable plastic bottles will be sent to manufacturing plants where they will be made into carpeting, clothing and more.
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.
