Recycle Help
The Highlands Borough, one of many towns that share this characteristic, does not recycle plastic bags or lids. Residents are expected to place these items, along with others that are identified at this link, in the trash. What does this mean? If these items can not be collected by our recycling companies they are left in landfills and ultimately end up in our oceans. This year, Highlands enrichment students will be faced with finding a solution to this ongoing issue. A problem that affects aquatic life and stability every day. In the meantime, I ask you to collect items like plastic bags and bottle caps until further notice. We will be working together to find a place for these items to avoid leaving them to rot for years to come. After all, these items are non-biodegradable. This means they exist forever until they are reused for a new purpose.

Let's find that purpose!
