Cumberland County looks for resident input on recycling services

Electronics Recycling Center

The county has an online survey, where it asks questions on residents' experience with current county programs, including the electronics recycling center and household hazardous waste events. The county is also looking to assess future programs, such as the need for a shredding paper service.

“Through the Waste Management Plan, our mission is to outline strategies for reducing, reusing, or recycling our waste to lessen the amount in which we need to dispose,” said Justin Miller, Recycling and Waste Authority coordinator for the county. “The survey only takes four minutes and our residents’ input will be used to help us determine which programs the county should offer and how those programs should be funded.”

Currently, the county charges a fee for some programs in lieu of taxes, including a 50 cents per pound fee at the electronics recycling center and a 30 cents per pound fee for household hazardous waste.
