If you live in Somerset County you may be wondering, “Why are those orange bags tied to my recycling bucket?”

Somerset County Freeholder Director Mark Caliguire has the answer: “Our county recycling crews are delivering these colorful collection bags now for the annual Curbing Hunger Month food drive in June. If your container is at the curb on your recycling pickup day between May 11 and 22, you’ll receive two bags.

“But don’t worry if you don’t get one of the orange bags,” he said. “You can still make a curbside donation of canned food using any plastic grocery bag – just write ‘FOOD’ on it.”
