No You Can’t Stop Recycling If It Gets Too Expensive – At the Swap and Share a question came up about a provision of the Recycling Act (N.J.S.A. 13:1E-99.11 et seq.) that would permit a town to stop recycling a designated recyclable material if the cost to recycling that material was more than the cost to transport and dispose of that material as Solid Waste.
THIS IS NOT THE CASE – there was language in the Original (1987) Recycling Act in the definition of “Market(s)” that spoke of this but the 1993 Amendments to the Law (P.L. 1993, c.109) removed that language.
