On Saturday, April 9th, the Cumberland County Improvement Authority, in association with the City of Millville, the Landis Sewerage Authority and the Cumberland County Utilities Authority, will sponsor the first Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Recycling Day of 2011.
Residents may bring their household generated hazardous waste and electronics to the City of Millville Streets and Road Complex on Ware Avenue from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This event is reserved specifically for Cumberland County residents. Residents are allowed to dispose of the following items: gasoline and kerosene, pesticides and herbicides, household batteries, oil-based paints, turpentine and thinners, and other solvents.
Residents are limited to 150 pounds or 20 gallons of material per trip. Electronics, limited to six computer units per resident, include such items as computers, monitors, keyboards, TVs, VCR and DVD players, stereos and cell phones.
No small quantity commercial generators of hazardous material will be allowed to dispose of their waste during these clean-up days, said Cumberland County Recycling Coordinator Dennis DeMatte Jr.
“I would also like to remind everyone that tires will not be accepted at the Hazardous Waste Days this year. Residents may bring tires to the Cumberland County Solid Waste Complex during normal business hours. There is a fee of two dollars per automobile tire, and five dollars per truck tire under ten tires,” concluded DeMatte.
Anyone with questions regarding the Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Recycling Days may contact the Cumberland County Improvement Authority at (856) 825-3700. If you are unable to attend this clean-up day, store your eligible materials in a safe manner until the next scheduled collection day on June 4 at the County Complex in Bridgeton. The last collection day for 2011 will be September 10 at the City of Vineland Road Department.
