As per N.J.A.C. 7:26 et seq., the Solid Waste Program achieves and maintains the safe management of waste in an environmentally sound manner, ensuring exposure to environmental risks are controlled and minimized. In conjunction with the Mercer County Division of Public Health County Environmental Health Act Agency staff, the Mercer County Improvement Authority (MCIA) helps oversee and manage the County’s solid waste program. Program activities include yearly inspections of permitted solid waste facilities and the investigation of solid waste complaints received through the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Emergency Notification Hotline and from citizens, local health departments, and commercial businesses. 

The Mercer County Improvement Authority manages a curbside recycling program for the majority of county residents and inspects businesses and schools to promote the reuse, recycling, and reduction of solid waste materials in Mercer County. The County is also responsible for implementing a countywide Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste Collection Program that take place several times throughout the year.
