National Recycling Day

November 15, 2019

ONE DAY to educate

ONE DAY to motivate

ONE DAY to make recycling bigger & better

 

November 15th is National Recycling Day. According to "National Geographic," Americans send 64 tons of waste to landfills during their lifetime. That's 246 million tons of waste each year. National Recycling Day aims to encourage Americans to purchase recycled products and recycle more.

 

​3 Powerful Ways Recycling Saves Energy

 

  1. ​It fuels your binge-watching

    One recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a TV for three hours.

  2. ​It maximizes social media time

    One recycled glass bottle can save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes.​

  3. ​It keeps the lights on

    One recycled plastic bottle can save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours.

 

 

Reduce - Reuse - Recycle

RECYCLE COACH
 
Do you know what day recycling is picked up? How about the proper way to dispose of an old air conditioner unit? All that information and much more is now available at your fingertips via the RECYCLE COACH app.
 
It's simple and easy to use.
To see your zone, just click on "View Schedule" and type in your address.
 


 
 
This free app provides residents in The Borough of Sayreville with sanitation and recycling information specific to their zone. The app along with our website features a monthly calendar of sanitation and recycling pick-up days, a search function that provides information on the proper way to dispose of specific items and tips on ways to reduce waste. Users can also set reminders to inform them of sanitation and recycling pick-up days, as well as directly report problems to the Public Works Department.
 
New Jersey has become the first state to bring RECYCLE COACH technology, free of charge, to all resdients to help increase recycling rates statewide and provide information in a simple, clear, and concise manner. Thanks to the Department of Environmental Protection who purchased RECYCLE COACH'S online technology, Sayreville residents can now access information through their smart devices and computer in 2019.

 

The RECYCLE COACH application download is available on the Google Play and Apple Store for free.
