Hazardous Waste (Waste)

NJ has many hazardous waste sites but, clean ups are ongoing and need to be monitored regularly.  Active known and closed sites can be found here.   Many Superfund sites have been redeveloped.

The NJ DEP  Bureau of Hazardous Waste Compliance and Enforcement program ensures that hazardous waste is properly identified and collected, transported, treated and disposed of in an environmentally sound manner


Recycling (Waste)

Recycling is complicated and troublesome.  Environmental commissions can help communities to reduce waste and reliance on foreign recycling.

Every County and Municipality should have a designated recycling coordinator who is responsible for the county or municipality recycling program.  NJ has a number of laws regarding recycling.  More information about recycling in NJ can be found here.  Find your County Recycling website links.
