Recycling Program

Recycling is easier than ever with single stream! Place all of your recyclables in the same container. That’s it!

Counties are required by state law to have a county recycling plan in place that specifies, among other things, those recyclable materials that must be recycled from the residential, commercial and institutional throughout the county. Thanks to the residents, organizations and businesses, Cumberland County has been the leader in recycling for the State of New Jersey. NJDEP statistics recently showed Cumberland County as number one for four straight years from 2010 to 2014.

In Cumberland County, residents can now combine all recycling materials in one red container! Recycle plastics (1,2,4,5,7), steel/tin, aluminum, glass, newspapers, magazines, cartons, beverage/food containers, clean cardboard and other paper. There’s no need to tie or bundle paper before recycling. Shredded paper is accepted at convenience centers and the Solid Waste Complex only. Check with your local municipality for more information.
