MCMUA Household Hazardous Waste Facility

Mt. Olive Transfer Station
168 Gold Mine Road
Mount Olive, NJ   07836
Tel: (973) 829-8006   Fax: (973) 285-8397

 The facility is available by appointment only and is open on selected Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings. One must not show up to the HHW facility without first calling (973-829-8006) and making an appointment. The MCMUA schedules appointments in 5-minute increments from 9:00am-11:30pm during Tuesday and Friday hours and from 8:00am-10:30am during Saturday hours. Appointments are made every 5 minutes in an effort to make sure participants will get into and out of the facility without waiting too long. Anyone who happens to arrive at the site prior to the scheduled appointment for that day can enter the drop-off location to see if the load can be emptied right away.
Items accepted from Morris County residents and businesses with less than 50 employees are now free of charge.


We've made it easy to help the environment—and others—in just a few easy steps:

  1. Find out if Reconnect will accept the item.

    In general, Reconnect accepts any brand of computer equipment in any condition from consumers and recycles it for free. We also accept just about anything that can be attached to a computer. Check our items we accept page for a complete list of what we do—and do not—accept.

  2. Find a drop-off location.

    Use our Find a Location feature (at the top of this page) to see if a Goodwill near you participates in the program. If Reconnect is not yet available in your area, let us know. Goodwill and Dell are working to continue expanding the program and share a long term goal of making it available nationwide.

  3. Drop off the item.

    As a general rule, consumers can just drop off the item at any participating Goodwill. However, some items may require extra preparation before you bring them in. For details, check our items we accept page.

  4. Feel good about what you've done.

    Your donated equipment has value—sometimes as a whole system, sometimes as parts, and sometimes as raw materials such as metals, plastics and glass. The proceeds from your donation are all returned to Goodwill and help to support Goodwill's important mission of putting people to work. You'll get a receipt for tax purposes, plus you'll be helping to protect the environment and benefit your community at the same time!

Designed for residents of New York & New Jersey. It is illegal to dump your old PC's, Printers and Electrical Equipment with the regular trash. We recycle your unwanted e-waste in accordance with EPA & State regulations. This disposal service is  FREE for residents of NJ & NY.
