  • 5. Top sources of litter and what you can do to make and sustain a beautiful Newark: • Trash is carelessly thrown away by pedestrians and motorists. Keep a litter bag in your car at all times. When you are traveling on foot. Use litter baskets on the street. If a basket is not near, a small bag carried in a purse or coat pocket can serve as a temporary litter bag. • People feel free to throw more litter in places where it has already piled up. Remove litter from your yard as well as the sidewalk and curb in front of your home or business. Remember that you are required by law to maintain your property and keep it free of litter. • Trash spills out of trash cans and dumpsters that are not properly covered. Place garbage out for collection in tightly covered cans or sealed plastic bags. Bundle newspapers placed out for recycling. If you place your trash at the curb on the wrong day or too late for collection, don’t leave it at the curb – bring it back to your property until your next scheduled pickup. If you use a commercial dumpster, make sure the doors are tightly closed at all times. • Trash blows from construction sites, demolition sites and trucks with uncovered loads. If you see that large amounts of trash are coming from a nearby business or construction site, report the problem anonymously, to the Newark Department of Neighborhood & Recreational Services at 973.733.5373. If you notice trucks spilling debris onto the streets, take a picture, write down the company name on the truck along with any identification numbers and report the problem to the Department of N&RS Trash and Recycling Guidelines: • Collection will be provided only on the days listed here. Residents who place garbage, recyclables or bulk at the curb on the wrong days may be fined a minimum of $100 for each day the garbage is left out. • Place trash at the curb by 6:00AM on your collection day. If you put your trash and recyclables out the night before collection, pleas not the following: From November 1 until the last day of April, trash and recyclables should be placed out for collection after 6:00PM on the night before scheduled collection. From May 1st to the last day of October, garbage and recyclables should be placed out for collection after 8:00PM on the night before scheduled collection.
  • 6. A to Z Green Tips After drying clothes, clean your lint filter to save energy, cash and reduce fire hazard. Buy in bulk and save big on waste and money. Check out local farmers markets- it saves fuel and helps farmers in your community. Donate old newspapers to your local humane society. ASPCA or pet shops. Energy Star qualified electronics and appliances use less energy and are more efficient. Fix leaky faucets, one drop per second can add up to 165 gallons per month. Glass bottles and jars can be recycled. Help your community. Donate old clothing and household goods. Insulate walls and attics to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Junk mail can be reused as scrap paper or recycled with your newspaper. Keep drinking water in the refrigerator, a running faucet uses 3-5 gallons s minute. Leftover drinking water is good for watering plants. Make sure you turn off lights, appliances, fans, etc. when leaving the room. Natural landscaping reduces pollution and preserves natural resources. Only run your dishwasher and washing machine when they are full. Paper bags can be recycled. Ask for these instead of plastic. Quit using disposables. Use reusable mugs, lunch containers, batteries, razors, etc. Recycle paper, aluminum, steel, plastics, glass, scrap tires, cell phones and electronics. Save energy and cash. Switch to compact fluorescent lights. Thaw food in the fridge the night before you need it to save water and energy. Use cold water instead of hot in your clothes washer to conserve energy and cash. View and pay your bills online, we’d save 18.5 million trees per year. Walking short distances instead of driving means saving on gas and les air pollution. Xmas and other holiday cards can be reused as gift tags. You can compost organic byproducts like leaves, grass, paper towels, napkins, food scraps, etc. Zoom around town on a bike or take mass transportation to work, to the store, etc. once a week.
