A MESSAGE FROM PUBLIC WORKS
It's Time to Recycle!
2016 is upon us and the Borough of Hatboro is resolving to recycle. While the Borough executed numerous projects throughout 2015 to lessen the town’s carbon footprint, this year we are prioritizing the reduction of our environmental impact through recycling.
In the New Year, the Hatboro Public Works Department has created a goal to recycle more material within our community than ever before. In the most recent recycling report performed by ReCommunity, the Borough of Hatboro totaled an impressive 659 tons of recycled material or enough to save 2,162 trees and over 438 gallons of oil! For 2016, the Public Works Department desires to recycle more than ever before.
Because of the Public Works Department’s single stream recycling system, this goal is now easier to reach than ever before. The single stream system eliminates the need to separate different types of recyclable materials from one another, allowing residents to place all of their recycling in one combined container.
In order to increase our recycling collection, the Public Works Department is asking residents to join our mission to lessen the town’s impact on the environment by remembering to participate in their weekly recycling pickups. Please remember that recyclable items include – but are not limited to – glass bottles, cans, and containers, Aluminum cans, foil, and bottle caps, paper products such as cardboard, newspaper, and books, and plastics such as containers and jugs. These items should be collected throughout the week and placed at the curb on your regularly scheduled recycling day.
By recycling as many of these materials as possible, the Borough of Hatboro is not only helping the global environment, but is improving the condition of the town. Recycling bottles, cans, and paper keeps the streets of Hatboro clean of litter on a daily basis. Simultaneously, the decreased amount of litter reduces polluted runoff and the amount of debris in our local streams, therefore increasing the cleanliness of the Borough.
The Public Works Department would like to thank the residents for their immense recycling effort in the past, and encourage an even bigger effort in 2016 and beyond. Together, let’s strive to make Hatboro a better place, not only in the New Year, but in all of the years to come!
Statistics provided by the annual recycling reports performed by ReCommunity.com.
