Dates of free Household Special Waste collection announced for 2020

(Clayton, NJ) Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger announced the dates of the 2020 Household Special Waste (HSW) collection program will take place in the spring during April and May, and again in the fall in Sep. and Oct.

Freeholder Director Damminger said that during the 2019 Household Special Waste Program we accepted roughly 210,963 pounds of materials from about 2,657 county residents.

Damminger said, “The participation continues to grow and these events help residents keep waste that can harm the environment out of the landfill.”

“This is a great opportunity for residents to clean out their garage, attic, or shed and get rid of old items that cannot be placed in the regular trash and properly dispose of them for free,” added Damminger.

The HSW Program is a series of periodic collection events where county residents can drop off items such as oil-based paint, motor oil, antifreeze, rechargeable batteries, CFL bulbs, fluorescent tubes, fire extinguishers, 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.

HSW will be accepted at the Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex, 493 Monroeville Rd., South Harrison Township on April 25 and Sep. 26 and at the Gloucester County Public Works Department, 1200 N. Delsea Dr., Clayton on May 16 and Oct. 17.

All events are conducted rain-or-shine and start at 8 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. 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 events are limited to Gloucester County residents only. Commercial businesses are prohibited from participating.

Materials will only be accepted for each scheduled event at the designated drop-off site and will not be accepted at any other location (i.e. materials will not be accepted at the County Roads Department on a date when the collection is being held at the Solid Waste Complex).

For further information on the 2020 HSW Collection Program or to have a detailed brochure mailed to you that includes all materials accepted and maps to the drop-off sites, please contact the GCIA/Office of Recycling at 478-6045. You can also check out the Recycling Link at www.gcianj.com.
