Fanwood's legally mandated recycling program is changing during the summer of 2016. After almost 30 years of our citizens taking recyclables to our Recycling Center for sorting and sale to outside vendors, a combination of hard financial times, decreasing recycling volume and increasing taxpayer funding prompted the Borough Council to approve a shared services agreement with the Plainfield Municipal Utilities Authority (PMUA) to provide curbside collection of recyclables. Below are the important points of our transition to the curbside program.
Below is an info sheet that will be mailed to every home in August. It includes the tentative collection schedule, curbside do's and don'ts and info on a smartphone app that will soon be available at no cost.
