"No Plastic Bags"

“No Plastic Bags”

Southampton Township is proud to be a part of a clean community. One part of that is to promote and encourage proper recycling habits. While we strive to ensure only recyclable materials are submitted, we need everyone’s help to be successful.

In recent years, plastic bags have gained a lot of attention. Not only are they harmful to our environment, they make the process of sorting items extremely difficult to do. Burlington County has reached out to... municipalities for assisting in encouraging residents to exclude plastic bags from making their way into recycling carts.

To avoid additional costs and fines to the township, we are asking residents to refrain from placing plastic bags in their recycling carts and in the recycling dumpsters. Let's do everything we can to promote a clean environment by going green and by protecting our earth for not only our generation but for future generations!

** Did you know that plastic bags can sometimes be returned to your local food markets. Call your local food market to confirm.

(If you are unsure of the items that are recyclable, please refer to the “what to recycle” decal on the buckets. If you are still unsure, contact your local recycling coordinator or the Burlington County Recycling Facility.)
