Woodbine is showing it pays to recycle. Mayor William Pikolycky is pleased to announce that the Borough of Woodbine will receive $4,402.33 from the State of New Jersey for a recycling grant. New Jersey became the first state to require statewide recycling in 1987 with passage of the Statewide Mandatory Source Separation and Recycling Act. The state subsequently set a target of recycling 50 percent of the state’s municipal solid waste. Local governments receive 60% of the money the fund generates to help them enhance outreach and compliance efforts.
