EDISON – Visitors to Simon’s Menlo Park Mall may notice a number of new multi-slotted, black recycling receptacles located at mall entrances and other areas throughout the property.
They are all part of a new recycling program that recently began, an effort that will encourage customers to mix paper, plastic, aluminum and glass in one bin, all of which will subsequently be emptied into a Single Stream Recycling Compactor for proper disposal.
“Recycling is one of the most beneficial environmental practices available, effectively minimizing waste, saving energy and water and helping to reduce pollution in general,” said Menlo Park Mall and Brunswick Square Area Director of Marketing Suzy Lichter. “Together we can make an important contribution toward safeguarding the environment today and for our children’s future.”
Each month, Menlo Park Mall generates approximately 110 tons of garbage, totaling 1,320 tons of trash a year. The new recycling program at Menlo Park Mall will greatly reduce the amount of waste sent to nearby landfills as well as encourage shoppers, tenants and employees to pitch in and contribute to the going green movement.
