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 ten counties for six straight years from 2010 to 2016.
