Receipt and secure handling, processing or disposal of the following Acceptable Waste Types:
Each of the above commodity types is managed in a specific manner as dictated by NPEP’s Operations Plan and regulations consistent with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Subtitle D.
If you have any such wastes, please call NPEP and we can provide guidance and resources for proper handling and disposal options.
NPEP shreds or grinds green waste and certain wood wastes, places the processed material in piles called “windrows,” and then, as needed, mechanically turns the piles to promote aeration that aids in the decomposition of the material. The balance of air and water in the material raises its internal temperature, which is carefully probed and monitored by NPEP. After maintaining certain desired temperatures for long enough to remove any pathogens, the material cools and cures, becoming a soil conditioning product.
NPEP sorts this material, separating wood, concrete and metals. Concrete is pulverized into a fine material that can be used on site for internal road stabilization and waste cover material. Wood is added to the composting process or securely disposed. Metals that can be recycled are prepared for transport to a metals recycler.
NPEP has developed a rigorous receiving and handling protocol and set up a specialized receiving and treatment area for soils contaminated by hydrocarbons, usually from oil and gasoline spills. If you have PCS requiring treatment/disposal, please call NPEP to arrange.
NPEP receives waste oil, securely stores it, and arranges for its transload to an oil recycler.
New Residential Drop-Off Facility (RDO) – NPEP will be constructing a brand new RDO to replace the existing drop-off facility for small private vehicles and trucks at the main facility entrance off of Tonique Williams-Darling Highway. The new RDO will have elevated tipping stalls to make unloading safe, fast and easy for our customers.
Recycling of Mixed or Single Stream recyclables, including:
NPEP will design, build and operate a new on-site Material Recovery Facility (MRF) to sort and prepare recyclable commodities for reuse on-site, on island or transport for reuse elsewhere.
E-Waste Facility – Currently NPEP receives electronics waste and disposes of it securely on-site. A new E-waste separation, sorting and packaging facility is being set up at NPEP for secure shipment of e-waste to regulated e-waste recyclers.
Public Green Space – Part of NPEP’s mission is to reclaim some of the formerly contaminated property and turn it into a beautiful, safe public park and walking trail for the people of New Providence.
