Single Stream Recycling

You may notice a different way Northside Carting is collecting recyclables. It is called Single Stream Recycling which is approved by the DEP. Recyclables are collected in a regular rubbish truck, transported to the FCR facility where it is sorted into various items, i.e. paper, plastic, glass etc. Rather than sorting at the curb, it is done at the processing facility. A traditional recycling truck will be used in some areas, but please do not be concerned if you see the men load recyclables into a rubbish vehicle.
