Future Is Trash and Recycling

A judge has ordered the Borough of Hawthorne to seek new municipal sanitation bids because Future Sanitation's winning bid didn't provide adequate bonding to meet state law, according to American Chronicle. Both Matawan and Aberdeen use Future for municipal trash and recycling collection.

Future Sanitation of Farmingdale was established in 1999, per Businessweek. Future acquired Scruffy Carting early last year, according to North Jersey.comManta says Future is the largest private collection company ($50-100 million annual sales, 250-499 employees) in New Jersey, but provides a dead link for the company website.

Speaking of recycling, Matawan has not yet published its new recycling collection schedule, which apparently led to some confusion yesterday about what residents should be putting at the curb, according to one resident.

Here's the message for residents that was streaming this weekend on the Matawan Borough website:
