IMPORTANT: As of July 1,
2015, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP)
has transitioned from a transaction fee model to a convenience fee
model for accepting credit card payments. Please note that NJDEP
will continue to offer electronic check (eCheck/EFT) and Bill Me
Later (available on some services) payment options completely free
of any transaction charges.
Starting April 1, 2019, the new convenience
fee will be 2.0% of the amount being charged + $0.50. If you select
Pay via Credit Card, you will be transferred to the new credit card
processing web page. This page will display a line item for
the NJDEP fee and a separate Service Fee line item representing the
credit card convenience fee to be charged. As an example,
if the DEP fee is $50.00, the total charge will be $51.50
(convenience fee = $1.50).
Please enter the invoice number and the Program Interest ID
number from your paper bill. The invoice number can be found on the
top of the bill and the Program Interest ID number is found toward
the bottom left of the bill.
Please note that the invoice number is 9 digits long. Be sure to
enter the entire 9 digits (example: 121234567). Also, the Program
Interest ID number is 6 digits long. Please enter all zeroes in the
number (example: 001234).
