Camden County hosting household hazardous waste collection in Cherry Hill on Saturday

Residents can dispose of numerous household items at the Cherry Hill Public Works Complex from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Camden County Freeholder Board is holding a household hazardous waste collection on Saturday at the Cherry Hill Township Public Works Complex, 1 Perina Boulevard in Cherry Hill. All county residents can bring items to convenient drive-through collection site from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“This program provides one of the easiest and most convenient ways for all Camden County residents to do their part when it comes to creating a better environment for us all,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash. “It is very important to be able to provide this kind of service to residents because, by disposing of this material properly, we can ensure the public these elements will stay out of our waste stream and prevent it from making its way into the ground and our waterways.”

Camden County residents are asked to keep the environment healthy by bringing 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.
