A new era in recycling begins on Monday, April 1st as Cape May County begins their single-stream recycling program. On Thursday a new $4 million recycling facility was tested in Woodbine that will separate glass, metals, plastics and paper. Residents will now be able to place all recyclables together in one container. The program was instituted to encourage more recycling, which causes less trash to be dumped in landfills and increases rebates to local communities. Atlantic County adopted the single-stream recycling process in 2009.
