j0440104Thanks to our neighbors at Baristanet for bringing this one to our attention. Glen Ridge has announced that, beginning January 1, its trash hauler will pick up recyclables curbside every week, instead of twice a month.

That means, for those of you still scratching your heads over Verona’s collection calendar, that Glen Ridge residents can put all their recyclables out with their regular garbage. No sorting. That includes corrugated cardboard and a few categories of recyclables that we can’t even recycle up at Commerce Court, such as all plastics, numbers 1 through 7. (Verona only accepts plastics with code 1 and 2.)

There’s a trade-off, the story notes: Fewer pickups of bulky items. But we’d gladly accept that to make every-day recycling easier.
