READ THIS: RECYCLING SIMPLIFIED

The Borough needs to enforce these measures in order to maintain the facility used where we dispose of our recyclables. The return market on recycling has bottomed out and our vendors are forcing higher rates or looking for ways to cut current contracts. To maintain our current low contract we need to make sure that the proper materials are collected.
We acknowledge our original post on FaceBook and Web site might not have been viewed however, we are making every attempt to contact all residents to educate them on the new recycling demand placed on us by our facility.
We are confident by working together we will continue to make Runnemede a better place to live.
Material outlining the recycling process can be found at the Borough Hall.
Some of the bigger issues of this process are No plastic bags, no contaminated paper products, No metal or aluminum other than can goods. Only glass bottles Etc.
Some Example of things not allowed are pizza boxes and ice cream containers. A good guideline is if you think it’s trash it is.
Again we apologize for any disruptions or inconveniences, but together we can all work to make our rates stay low while continuing to help the environment.

Snow Plowing Tips – The following are some tips and facts to help you better understand the snow removal process:

  • HOW TO SHOVEL A DRIVEWAY APRON: When shoveling, pile the majority of the snow to the left of your driveway, as when facing your house. This helps when the snowplows come by…there is less snow to be plowed in front of your driveway. The shoveling of snow into the road is not permitted. The snow plows will only push the snow back into your driveway. Try to wait until storm has past and plows have plowed curb to curb before opening driveway aprons.
  • WHEN DOES PLOWING START? Snowplows typically start the plowing process after 3 to 4 inches of snow has fallen.
  • While the storm is on going the main purpose of plowing is to assist in response of Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Service to respond to Emergencies.
  • HOW DOES SALT WORK? After the salt is applied, cars work the salt into the snow to make the salt do its job. Slush created by the salt and traffic can then be pushed off of the roadways. Once solid ice mats are formed it is difficult to remove them with a plow blade. Salt is also applied after plowing to improve driving conditions.
  • HOW DOES BRINE WORK? Brine is a liquid solution of 23% salt and 72% water that is applied to road surface prior to a storm to create a barrier between the snow or ice and road surface. It assists in removal of snow when plowed to reduce ice mats from forming.
  • WHY CAN’T I LEAVE MY CAR IN THE STREET? By removing your car from the street, plowing can be done efficiently and prevents the car from being plowed in. It also protects the car from being splashed with slush and salt.

WHAT ABOUT PORTABLE BASKETBALL HOOPS OR OTHER PERSONAL PROPERTY? Just like cars, all personal property should be removed from the street. If they are left in the street you can be summonsed and damage can occur by plows.
