Passaic County Continues To Accept
Non-Traditional Recyclables

NEW JERSEY – The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs continues to accept several non-traditional items for recycling from the public at its site in Wayne, N.J. This program enables residents to bring their unwanted tubular fluorescent bulbs, old cell phones, used laser toner and ink-jet cartridges, unwanted plastic grocery bags, rechargeable batteries (NiCad, NiMH, Li-ion, and NiZn), single use button cell batteries (silver oxide), and polystyrene (Styrofoam block and peanuts) to 1310 Route 23 North in Wayne (take the service road next to Ski Barn and Gary’s Wine & Marketplace) from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday thru Friday only.

Residents are reminded that they must call for exact specifications as to how materials must be prepared before they are dropped off, and participants must be met by a staff worker at the site who will direct them. Each individual battery, for example, must either be placed in a plastic zip-sealed bag, or both ends must be taped over with masking tape. Please call the Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738 for further information. This program continues to be offered free of charge to Passaic County residents, in cooperation with the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
