IMPORTANT--CHANGE TO RECYCLING REGULATIONS--NO PLASTIC BAGS!!

 

Effective immediately--no plastic bags or trash of any kind can be in with recycling.  Plastic bags cause equipment jams at the recycling center and they will start to fine us if it continues.  We are also having a problem with residents putting food trash and greasy pizza boxes in with recycling.  These cannot be recycled!!  All containers must be rinsed clean and free of any food products.  Beginning the week of November 26, we will be monitoring recycling and will not collect any recycling if we see residents putting plastic bags or trash in with recycling.  We will leave you a warning notice with additional information.  For more information on recycling regulations, you can view a short video at the following website:  www.recyclingsimplified.com or go to YouTube and put in Recycling Simplified to view the video. 

 

If your recycling contains anything improper, it will not be collected and the following notice will be left at your door:  Recycling notice

INFORMATION ON RAFFLES & BINGO

Any organization that wants to conduct a basket auction, 50/50, designer bag bingo, or any other kind of raffle must have a license.  The organization must first be licensed by the state of New Jersey to conduct games and then a separate license is required for each game to be held from the municipality where the games will be conducted.  For more information on obtaining a gaming license from the state, you can go to the Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission website. Once you have your gaming license, contact the Municipal Clerk to obtain a license for the individual games to be held.  Paperwork for a raffle/bingo license must be received a month before your scheduled event.  We must have three notarized and originally signed copies of the application.  Each application must be signed by two officers of the organization.  Contact the Municipal Clerk at 856-931-1546 or via email at boroclerk@mountephraim-nj.com.
