AVOID THE SPARK
There are hidden dangers tied to improper handling and disposal of batteries at their end-of-life. This has led to an increasing number of fires at recycling centers and waste facilities and in garbage trucks. Learn how to safely manage batteries and find drop-off locations for end-of-life batteries at the “Avoid the Spark – Be Battery Safety Smart” website found at https://www.call2recycle.org/avoid-the-spark-nj/. There is also a collection box located at the Mansfield Township Municipal Building, 100 Port Murray Road, Port Murray, New Jersey.
Batteries should never be put in your recycling cart, bucket, or bin because they are contaminants in the recycling process. Certain rechargeable batteries - lithium batteries, in particular - may combust if damaged and pose a threat to recycling facilities and staff. Learn about non-recyclable batteries that can be safely disposed in the trash, as well as rechargeable batteries that can be recycled at https://www.call2recycle.org/.
Rechargeable Batteries can be recycled at the Municipal Complex.
A drop box is located on the second floor – Administrative Office hallway.

Plastic Nursery Pots, Plug Tray, and Flats
A new opportunity exists that will enable farmers to recycle nursery pots, plastic flats, trays and Cell packs. The cost of disposing of HDPE #2 nursery pots weighing 20,000 pounds can be up to $ 580 at a landfill. Plastic recyclers are looking for these materials and offering to pay for the scrap.
Each type of plastic is to be segregated on separate pallets. Most of the plastic has a code stamped on it (#6 keynotes polystyrene, #5 polypropylene, and #2 HDPE). All plastics, with the same code, regardless of size, style or color, can be placed on the same pallet. If the type of plastic cannot be identified, misc. items can be placed on a separate pallet with a notation stating – plastic needs to be sorted. Sorted plastics by types will receive a better price.
Some plastics recyclers will generally pick up half or full trailer loads of materials. For shipments of only a few pallets, the plastic recyclers will generally try to combine the pickup with another farmer in the area as a way to fill up the trailer.
In the end, the farmer will save landfill tipping fees which can run upwards of $100 per ton in NJ, they can generate $20-$100 per ton revenues by recycling and they will do their part to help NJ increase it recycling.
