|SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING IS HERE!
Effective September 1, 2014, Single Stream Recycling began for towns in Burlington County that are currently enrolled in the program. Tabernacle residents are included in this program. Single Stream Recycling means that there will no longer be a need to separate your bottles and cans from your paper items. All the recycling will be collected in the blue 96 gallon containers that have been distributed to the homes in Tabernacle. The round buckets will no longer be used as the trucks picking up the recycling will be using the automated lift system on trucks. Residents are being asked to hold onto these round buckets temporarily until a decision is made on what to do with them.
REMEMBER!!! ALL CONTAINERS ARE PROPERTY OF THE TOWNSHIP AND MUST REMAIN ON THE PROPERTY ASSIGNED. IF A CONTAINER IS REMOVED AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, THE RESIDENT WILL BE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE A NEW CONTAINER.
Some residents may have concerns as to whether or not their container will be large enough to hold both the paper and other recyclable items. Residents are being given an opportunity to order a second container before this Single Stream Recycling begins. To place your order, please click on this email link:firstname.lastname@example.org and follow the directions for ordering a cart or call 609-499-1001. Residents will have a choice of selecting either another 96 gallon or 64 gallon or 48 gallon container. There is no extra cost for this container.
The final deadline for ordering these additional containers is: SEPTEMBER 30, 2014.
For more information, please call: 609-499-1001 or send an email to: email@example.com

Atlantic City Electric Reminds Customers to Call 811 Before Digging
Steer Clear of Overhead and Underground Utility Lines
(Posted on April 3, 2014)
MAYS LANDING, N.J. — April is National Safe Digging Month, and Atlantic City Electric reminds customers to be safe and call 811 before tackling any outdoor construction project that involves digging. 811 is the nationally recognized “Call Before You Dig” phone number designated to help save lives by minimizing damages to underground utilities. One free call to 811 connects you to New Jersey One Call, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of your intent to dig. Professional locators are then sent to the requested digging site to mark the locations of underground facility lines with flags or spray paint. “Our goal is to educate and promote awareness around underground facility protection and safety, and stress the importance of calling 811 before digging,” said Vince Maione, region president, Atlantic City Electric. Avoid overhead utility lines when carrying long or tall items, such as ladders, scaffolding, tree saws and pool cleaning equipment by holding these items parallel to the ground. Please remember to look up before raising a ladder or similar object to be sure it’s clear of overhead wires. Touching a power line with any part of the body or most objects can result in serious injury or even death. Electricity can move through conductive materials such as water, metal, wood, aluminum, string and plastic. Certain critical clearances are required by law, and a minimum of 10 feet must be maintained when working near power lines. For more information and updates, visit www.atlanticcityelectric.com.

9TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT OFFICE
620 Lacey Road, Forked River, NJ 08731
Tabernacle Township is part of the 9th Legislative District of New Jersey. Residents with questions or concerns are welcome and encouraged to contact their representatives by calling their offices or mailing correspondence to the address above. To reach them by email:
Senator Chris Connors Assemblyman Brian Rumpf Assemblywoman Dianne Gove
Residents of Tabernacle Township are encouraged to recycle as much material as possible including, bottles, cans, plastic, paper and cardboard. As part of this effort, Tabernacle Township has partnered with RecycleRewards, Inc. to offer incentives to those residents that recycle their paper and cardboard. Residents were assigned a 96 gallon container several years ago. These containers contain micro-chips that have been registered with the Township to indicate the property location assigned to that particular container. When the paper/cardboard recycling truck empties the container, the micro-chip registers that that resident participated in the recycling effort. The paper/cardboard tonnage is weighed and points are assigned and divided amongst the residents that recycled that day. The more that is recycled, the more points are earned.
If you have not already done so, or are new to the Township, you may register with RecycleBank for these points which can then be redeemed for discounts to various businesses or products. To register please click on this link:www.recyclebank.com or you can call 1-888-727-2978.
Residents are asked to please notify the Tabernacle Township office should your container become damaged and need repairs. You may call: 609-268-2570. If a container is removed from the residence and needs to be replaced, the owner of the property must pay to replace this container. The cost is $65.00.
