FRANKLIN — It pays to recycle.

Administrator Jim Kilduff was unanimously appointed Certified Recycling Professional at the March 11 Borough Council meeting. With the appointment, the borough qualifies for additional grant money based on the tonnage of recycled materials reported to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

"The more tonnage we report, the more money we get through the grant," Kilduff said. Without a staff member with the certification to sign the application, though, the borough wouldn't qualify for any of the money.

Franklin is in a position to report a large amount of recyclables because of its large number of commercial properties, Kilduff said.

While many municipal recycling professionals get paid for their effort, Kilduff "did not ask for a stipend," Mayor Paul Crowley said.

The borough will be responsible for costs involved with Kilduff's recertification, which Crowley said will be minimal as the administrator has taken the 21-day initial certification course in the past.

After the appointment, the council unanimously voted to send the tonnage grant application to the NJDEP.
