Several times a year the County Complex  on Route 12 holds a Household Hazardous Waste Clean Up event.

No pre-registration required and all county residents are welcome.

Leftover household products may contain corrosive, ignitable, reactive, or toxic ingredients and are considered to be household hazardous waste. Improper disposal of these wastes (pouring down drain, storm sewers or in some    cases putting them out with the trash) are unlawful and will  pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health.

NO COMPUTERS OR MONITORS WILL BE ACCEPTED: See information about our Special Electronics Cleanup Day Program

Find out here.


  1. Please limit one person per household entering the HHW program location.
  2. Please place items in the rear of the vehicle.
  3. There will be no pour offs of containers. The way the waste is packaged is the way the waste will be unloaded. This limits the amount of time an unloader can be subjected to the driver. If gas cans are brought in the can will not be given back empty to the driver.




Hunterdon County Division of Solid Waste and Recycling Services has recently joined in the state wide launch of Recycle Coach - a free app designed to help make recycling and solid waste information more accessible to County residents and engage the public. "REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE". The NJ Department of Environmental Protection is the first state to purchase the Recycle Coach app and make it available to all NJ Residents FREE of charge.

Recycle Coach provides accurate, up to date information with a click of a button for Hunterdon County's Special Recycling Events for Electronics Recycling, Hazardous Waste Clean up Days, and other special events offered by the County. Hunterdon County's 26 municipalities have also been asked to join in on the venture and share their curb side pick up schedules (if their municipality provides those services) and other special recycling/solid waste events they may hold for their residents.

The Recycle Coach App provides personalized collection schedules based on your residence which can also automatically be added to your calendar app. You will also be alerted of any change in recycling schedules to to holidays or weather.  Learn more by exploring the information below:
