FREEHOLDERS HOST HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION
You can help keep the environment clean and green this Saturday, April 21, by participating in the Household Hazardous Waste Collection drive-through event at the Collingswood Public Works Complex, 713 N. Atlantic Avenue, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
“Each year, Camden County’s Special Household Waste Collection Program keeps over 400,000 pounds of hazardous material from the county waste stream,” said Freeholder Jeffrey Nash, liaison to the Division of Environmental Affairs.”
Bring your unwanted oil-based paints, solvents, thinners, pesticides, herbicides, gasoline, kerosene, polishes, photographic chemicals, automotive batteries, antifreeze, brake fluid, transmission fluid, other car products, pool chemicals and cleaning fluids to our convenient drive-through disposal site.
It is important to remember that latex paint, which is most commonly used today, is not hazardous and can be dried out for disposal on your regular trash day.
