Recycling and Governmental Institutions

Q. Are shared services available with the MCMUA's single-stream recycling program?

A. The MCMUA procured its single-stream recycling contract with municipal shared services in mind. Municipalities can easily execute inter-local governmental shared services agreements with the MCMUA to enjoy the single-stream recycling services and marketing terms competitively procured by the MCMUA. Towns do not have to be MCMUA curbside collection customers to enter into such agreements. Please contact the MCMUA for more information about this opportunity. There is no longer any need to wait to bring the benefits of single-stream recycling to your municipality.


Hazardous Waste Management for Governmental Institutions

Q. Can a governmental institution and/or school use the MCMUA hazardous waste program?

A. Pre-qualified institutions may drop off hazardous waste at the MCMUA's permanent HHW facility located at the Mount Olive transfer station by appointment and for a fee. Institutional waste is not accepted at MCMUA one-day hazardous waste disposal programs. Call 973-285-8394 for more information.

Q. Can governmental institutions recycle rechargeable batteries with Call2Recycle® ?

Call2Recycle® will provide free-of-charge drop-off boxes to any public entity for the collection and recycling of their own rechargeable batteries.  All one has to do is sign up online at http://www.call2recycle.org.  Public drop-off sites open to the general public will be listed on the Call2Recycle® zip code locator and toll-free help-lines to encourage residents to recycle.   Additionally, institutions can still participate in the Call2Recycle® program without being advertised as a public drop-off location if they do not want to listed as such.  Since everything is free of charge, the MCMUA is encouraging every public agency to request a drop-off box for its office or work site. For those public entities that utilize 2-way radios such as police, fire, public works and emergency services, the Call2Recycle® program is a great way to conveniently manage the rechargeable batteries that are generated and need to be recycled.
