All customers must fill out a Waste Origin and Disposal Form (PDF) prior to entering the Complex.
All ID27 waste must be properly classified prior to acceptance for disposal at the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex.
ID27 waste, which is defined by the NJDEP as dry industrial waste resulting from manufacturing, industrial and research and development processes and operations, requires classification as hazardous or non-hazardous in order to determine the proper disposal option. The regulations set forth at N.J.A.C. 7:26G state that it is the responsibility of the waste generator to determine whether the waste generated is hazardous.
In order to assist waste generators, the County has developed a Waste Classification Request Form (PDF). The form lists all the information required for a proper classification. This includes information about the generator, waste generation process, waste type, waste volume and description and waste sampling. A site diagram, analytical report complete with laboratory quality assurance information and analytical test results tabulation must also be included with the Waste Classification Request Form.
Source Separated Waste
Source separation is the segregation of different types of solid waste at the location where they are generated (a household or business). The most common reason for separating wastes at the source is for recycling. The following is a list of charges for source separated waste at the Complex.
