Town's private trash hauler begins recycling incentives

Waste Management kicked off its recycling incentive program in Galloway Township on Wednesday. Through a partnership with Recyclebank, Waste Management will offer rewards from local stores in proportion to the weight of a household's recyclables.

Customers will not pay more for service from Waste Management, which recently switched to single-stream recycling, as did the Atlantic County Utilities Authority. The change ultimately cuts operating costs by nearly one-third, officials have said.

Recyclebank already operates in 15 states, including New Jersey, but Galloway will bring its first clients in the southeastern part, according to a statement from the company.

Galloway residents must hire their own collectors for trash and recycling; Waste Management formerly contracted with the ACUA to handle its Galloway clients, but that contract expired at the end of the year, when Waste Management picked up with recycling bank.
