The HCIA typically provides Household Hazardous Waste Collection Days in the Fall and Spring where residents of Hudson County have the opportunity to rid their homes of dangerous materials that cannot be thrown away in regular trash collections.  Contact the Hudson County Improvement Authority for additional information about their programs.

In addition, each municipality now has its own permanent used motor oil and antifreeze collection areas, so residents needn’t wait for HHW days to get rid of these items.

Don’t forget to bring proof of residency with you, such as a driver’s license or a phone bill, when you come to the collection site.
