Some Public Service Info on Recycling for Members Residing in Sussex County

Many of you may know that the county landfill in Lafayette, also known as SCMUA, is a great place to view gulls, but did you also know that it is a great place to recycle? (Imagine that!) You probably all know that county residents can bring typical recyclables like glass, aluminum, newspaper, and plastic, but SCMUA is continually adding more items that can be recycled. Cardboard, brown bags, milk/juice/other food cartons, hard styrofoam packaging materials with a #6, waste motor oil, batteries, vegetative waste, rigid plastics – these are just some of the many items they accept for recycling, and most are accepted free of charge! They even have special days each year on which they accept hazardous waste, computers, etc.for free. You can do your part to reduce waste and keep recyclables and toxins out of the landfill, not to mention lowering your trash bill, by checking their website for more information and bringing your items to SCMUA.
