Mayor William Pikolycky is pleased to announce that the Borough of Woodbine will receive a 2010 recycling rebate in the amount of $5,805.45 from the Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority (CMCMUA).
The CMCMUA provides recycling rebates to the County’s municipalities whenever the CMCMUA’s share of recycling revenues for the fiscal/calendar year exceeds the cost to operate the Authority’s Intermediate Processing Facility (IPF). The receipt of increased quantities of source separated recyclables will not only generate additional market revenues, but will also reduce the cost per ton cost of operating the IDF. Any investment made by a municipality this year to increase the tonnage recycled by that community will pay dividends in terms of higher rebates. These figures are based on recycling of mixed paper, commingled cans and bottles, and mixed rigid plastics.
“Woodbine’s 2010 IPF was based upon receipt of 264.34 tons of recyclable materials, so upping our percentage of recycled matter will increase next year’s rebate,” added Mayor Pikolycky, “At the same time that will decrease the amount of waste discarded into the landfill, keeping us a ‘green community’. So I encourage all our residents and businesses to become consistent, conscientious recyclers for the benefit of everyone.”
