Dates Announced for 2024 Household Hazardous Waste and Document Shredding Events

The dates for Household Hazardous Waste and Document Shredding for 2024 have been scheduled. This year’s dates are Saturday, April 13, Saturday, June 15, and Saturday, September 14. The events will take place from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Cumberland County Solid Waste Complex on 169 Jesse Bridge Road, Millville.

Household hazardous waste is toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive materials, and can only be disposed at Household Hazardous Waste events. Proper disposal is imperative to have a clean environment and to avoid illnesses. Document shredding is important for personal records and financial documents that should be destroyed appropriately to prevent identity theft.

For items that are considered hazardous material, Cumberland County residents may safely dispose of them at any of the Household Hazardous Waste and Document Shredding days sponsored by The Authority, in conjunction with the City of Millville, the Landis Sewerage Authority, and the Cumberland County Utilities Authority.

This service is restricted to Cumberland County residents only and is free. Proper ID is required at registration. Businesses (including home-based businesses), institutions, non-profits and non-county residents are not eligible for participation in these events and should contact appropriate companies for hazardous waste disposal and document shredding.

Accepted items are gasoline, kerosene, pesticides, herbicides, used motor oil, antifreeze, transmission fluid, car batteries, cleaning chemicals, fuel oil, oil-based paints, turpentine/thinners, televisions, electronics, fluorescent bulbs, and propane tanks. There is a limit to the items that will be accepted and residents are encouraged to visit The Authority’s website at for full list of limits and accepted items.
