    New Bulky Waste Bunker

    Construction is complete on a bunker for dropping-off bulky waste items at TCL. This includes: furniture, carpeting, mattresses, demolition debris, etc. Due to DEP regulations, regular household trash must still be deposited at the residential drop-off building. With this addition, no residential vehicles should be required to travel to the working face of the landfill. Commercial vehicles (those requiring a commercial driver’s license to operate) will still be directed to the landfill working face to dispose of waste.
