The Solid Waste Complex (SWC) has been serving the 14 municipalities of Cumberland County since October 13, 1987. The 239-acre site located on Jesse Bridge Road is home to the Scale House, Administration Building, Customer Drop Off Center, Equipment Storage and Maintenance Building, refueling stations for gasoline and diesel, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) filling station, Water Treatment Facility, Leachate Reject Evaporator System, Automated Truck Wash Center, Landfill Gas-to-Energy Plant, mini-MRF Recycling Center, storm water detention and sedimentation basins, and soil borrow area for daily cover.
To the north of the Solid Waste Complex property sits a 121-acre redevelopment area where The Authority’s new Administration Building is located. The additional acreage will contribute to future development and projects at The Authority, such as a Synagrow Biosolid Facility and solar fields partnered with Intersect Energy.
Join The Authority as we participate in No Mow May! No Mow May is a conservation initiative first popularized by Plantlife, an organization based in the United Kingdom. In an effort to increase New Jersey’s bee population, experts suggest leaving your property unmown for the month of May. Leaving your property unmown during this time creates habitat for early season pollinators and other wildlife. Studies show that participating properties had a three-times higher bee species richness, and five-times higher bee abundance, than properties that had been mowed.
