Ocean County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program


During fall of each year the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Solid Waste Management sponsors a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program.

Numerous collection days are offered for County residents to properly dispose of toxic household products such as herbicides, pesticides, household cleaners, paints and paint thinners, solvent and photographic chemicals.

Quantities are limited to 200 pounds for dry materials and 20 gallons for liquid materials. There is no charge for collection of these materials.

This program is not open to commercial establishments, schools, and municipal/state government agencies. Pre-registration is required for this program.
