Recycling

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 in the top two counties for four straight years from 2010 to 2014.

Recycling is easier than ever with single stream! Place all your recyclables – paper, plastic, aluminum, steel, cartons, glass, cardboard, tin – in the same container. That’s it!

Keep plastic bags out of recycling. Throwing plastic bags in your recycling bin contaminates all the items because they get wet, dirty and cannot be recycled. The CCIA reminds you to place all recyclables directly in the bin and not in plastic bags first. Take those plastic bags to your local supermarket or department store to dispose of properly.

Not at the curb! It’s dangerous and costly to put electronics out with trash. It’s also illegal. Cumberland County residents can recycle unwanted electronics at municipal drop off centers throughout the county. Check your municipality’s location here.
