Recycling relocation-how’s it going, Bradley?

February 22, 2011

Recently, Bradley Beach closed its recycling facility at the town’s Department of Public Works yard, due to construction of a new storage building there. Though curbside pickup was not affected, those wishing to drop recyclables off at a facility must now head to the Neptune Township recycling center, Heck Avenue, there.

This week I ask my Bradley friends: did this change affect you a little, a lot, or not at all??
