Bloomfield has purchased and installed two “Zero Waste Boxes” for residents to recycle used water filters, in an effort to make the township a more environmentally conscious community.
The boxes have been installed at the DPW at 230 Grove St. and the Municipal Building at 1 Municipal Plaza, first floor.
“Our township has put in a great deal of effort over the past several years into making Bloomfield a more environmentally friendly and sustainable community,” Mayor Venezia said. “These zero waste boxes will allow for residents to responsibly dispose of used water filters so that they do not land up in a landfill. I commend our DPW and recycling committee for their leadership in bringing this to Bloomfield.”
“Our Recycling Coordinator, Louise Palagano needs to be acknowledged for her leadership in providing another valuable service from the Recycling Committee for our residents," Councilman Nicholas Joanow said.
Residents may recycle their used water filters at the DPW on Saturdays between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. or the Municipal Building during regular business hours between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
