The Borough Needs Your Help in the Battle Against Recycling Contamination!


A contaminated recycling load costs $175 per ton to dispose of as opposed to $10 per ton for a clean recycling load. When non-recyclable items (contamination) end up in the recycling loads they have the potential to turn the entire load into trash, increasing processing costs and additional service charges.

WHAT ARE SOME THINGS THAT CAN CONTAMINATE A LOAD?
  • PLASTIC BAGS - plastic bags and film get tangled in machinery.
  • FOOD SOILED ITEMS - soiled items will turn an entire load of recycling into trash (RINSE YOUR ITEMS)
  • WET PAPER-please try to keep your recyclables dry 
  • E-waste- E-waste can be recycled but NOT CURBSIDE please bring E-waste to DPW recycling yard
  • TANGLERS- Rubber hoses & wires can shut down an entire recycling center
  • HAZARDOUS MATERIAL- can cause serious injury to workers
WHY THE SUDDEN CRACK-DOWN ON CONTAMINATION? 
In 2017 China began to limit the quantity of material it accepts for recycling and in 2018 added specific contamination limits.  The significant changes are affecting the recycling industry world-wide. As a result, our focus on quality is higher than ever, as we work to ensure long-term sustainability of our recycling programs.

Key points to keep in mind with plastic recyclables:
  • ALWAYS look for recycling sign indicating numbers 1 or 2
  • ALWAYS rinse out containers (plastic, glass & aluminum). 
  • NEVER place your recyclables in plastic bags when putting out for curbside collections
  • ALL recyclables MUST be in a clearly marked recycling container.
  • CONTAMINATED RECYCLING WILL NOT BE PICKED UP AND WILL BE LEFT CURBSIDE.  

One of the easiest ways to help is to NOT put your recyclables
in plastic grocery bags or clear garbage bags.  

 WHEN IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT.

Lincoln Park Exceptional Children - LPEC

Who are “Exceptional Children”? 
Exceptional children are not only those with special needs, but those that may face challenges in thinking, communication, movement, getting along with others, and taking care of one’s self.  Exceptional children may also have challenges with speech impediments, shyness and/or gross or fine motor skill challenges.  Exceptional children may have ADHD or they may be a “gifted child” that faces challenges from their academic abilities.  When we become educated on the exceptional child , we can  help lead the child toward being included with, not excluded from, regular activities.
