Household Special Waste Collection Day to be held this Saturday
(South Harrison Twp., NJ) -- Gloucester County Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger announced today that a Household Special Waste (HSW) Collection event will take place this Saturday, Sept. 23 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex, 493 Monroeville Road, South Harrison Township. The event will be held rain or shine.

The HSW Program is a series of periodic collection events conducted at specified locations where Gloucester County residents can drop-off their old oil-based paint, motor oil, antifreeze, rechargeable batteries, CFL bulbs, fluorescent tubes, solvents, pesticides, pool chemicals, and similar materials for recycling, reuse, and/or proper disposal. Latex paint is not accepted and must be dried out with kitty litter and placed in the regular trash. This is a free service for Gloucester County residents. Businesses are not permitted to participate.

Freeholder Director Damminger said, “This special waste collection event gives people a place to take old chemicals and other materials that cannot be placed in the regular trash. Every pound of that material that is collected helps keep our environment and waterways clean for future generations.”

No materials will be accepted after 2 p.m. Residents must adhere to the posted event times; materials cannot be accepted after the closing time.

The drop-off event is for Gloucester County residents only. Commercial businesses are prohibited from participating.
