By: Follow South Jersey Staff

GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Camden County will host the first of six hazardous waste collections on Saturday, March 25 where county residents can bring hazardous materials not suited to be thrown out into the regular garbage such as antifreeze, oil-based paints, weed killer, household cleansers and more.

Saturday’s collection will be held at the Public Works Complex in Cherry Hill at 1 Perina Boulevard from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

“Today is the first day of Spring and we know residents will be cleaning out their basements, garages, and sheds,” Commissioner Jeffrey Nash, liaison to the office of Environmental Affairs, said in a press release from the county. “These collections are a great way for our residents to clear out their homes of items that can’t just be tossed into the garbage.”

Hazardous waste collections are also scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the following dates:

  • April 15
  • Public Works Complex. 713 N. Atlantic Avenue, Collingswood
  • May 6
  • Parking area at the corner of Atco and Raritan avenues, Atco
  • June 10
  • Camden County Public Works Complex, 2311 Egg Harbor Road, Lindenwold
  • September 23
  • Sanitary Landfill, 9600 N. River Road, Pennsauken
  • October 14
  • Camden County Public Works Complex, 2311 Egg Harbor Road, Lindenwold

At each collection, all residents must show proof of residency and remain in their vehicles throughout the event. All materials to be dropped off should be placed in the rear cargo area of the vehicle, not in the passenger seating area.

“We are cutting down on the number of toxic materials making their way into the environment by collecting and disposing of them in the proper manner,” Nash stated. “We encourage all our residents to stop by one of the upcoming collections to get rid of any hazardous materials they have.”
