Navigation BulletOcean County Recycling Guide

OC LogoDear Ocean County resident, Ocean County takes great pride in protecting its environment and we commend you, our citizens, for continuing to do your part in taking care of our natural surroundings. In this guide you will see we have made some changes in our recycling programs including extending the time period of household hazardous waste collections and residential paper shredding. I am hopeful these changes will make the programs more convenient for you and will encourage additional participation. This guide is a useful tool that can answer many of your solid waste disposal and recycling questions. As we approach the summer months, I want to remind you and all of our visitors that recycling happens year round and there is no vacation from recycling. Again, I want to thank you for respecting the environment by participating in the many programs we provide so that items are disposed of safely and properly and the environment remains protected.
