Household Hazardous Waste Management and Disposal Program

The Bergen County Utilities Authority (BCUA) is pleased to announce the Household Hazardous Waste Management and Disposal Program schedule for 2006. The BCUA will conduct seven (7) household hazardous waste collection events in 2006. These one-day events will be held at different locations throughout Bergen County on weekend dates throughout the year. The increase in these one-day collection events is due to the significant increase in Bergen County residents participating over the last few years.
