Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program

Please Note: We will no longer be collecting "alkaline batteries" at the DPW for recycling. 

Hazardous waste items such as oil base paints, solvents and thinners, gasoline, antifreeze, chemicals, pesticides and herbicides are not excepted at the Recycling Center. These items can be disposed of on the Hazardous Waste Collection Days sponsored by the Bergen County Utilities Authority.
