Recycling Changes Effective October 1st

At a recent Avalon Borough Council meeting, Council hosted Joseph Rizzuto, Executive Director of the Cape May County MUA, regarding potential changes to the recycling marketplace. Mr. Rizzuto indicated there could be changes coming to the recycling practices in Cape May County due to overseas marketplaces driving the market for cleaner recyclable products than Americans typically produce.

Effective October 1st, large bulky rigid plastic and shredded paper will no longer be accepted as recyclable and should be disposed of as trash.

Please see the attached letter from the MUA.
