Clean Communities Program
Recycling and solid waste planning provides technical, educational and support services to local municipalities, agencies, schools and the general public on recycling and solid waste management practices. It produces fact sheets, recycling bulletins and presents environmental education programs to schoolchildren on a variety of topics. A "Waste Sites Map" developed in cooperation with the Health Department summarizing information on old landfills and hazardous waste sites in Monmouth County is also available. The staff administers the county's "Clean Communities" program and conducts "Backyard Composting" workshops. Furthermore, it works with municipalities, agencies, committees and the business community to develop and support wise waste management practices for the County.
Other duties include working with the Health Department and other County agencies to develop and budget for a variety of solid waste management activities including household hazardous waste, electronics recycling, and scrap tire management.
Recycling and Solid Waste Planning supervises and prepares budgets for specialty programs and activities at two closed landfills owned and maintained by county personnel. It also has the important role of providing staff services to the County's Solid Waste Advisory Council.
