SOUTH HARRISON TWP. — Gloucester County Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger announced that the County’s 2019 Household Special Waste (HSW) Collection Program.

HSW will be accepted at the Gloucester County Solid Waste Complex located at 493 Monroeville Rd. (County Rt. 694), South Harrison Township, on April 13 and Sept. 21 and at the Gloucester County Public Works Department located at 1200 N. Delsea Dr., Clayton, on May 18 and Oct. 19. 

All events are conducted rain-or-shine and start at 8 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. with no materials being 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).

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, 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. This is a free service for Gloucester County residents.

For further information on the 2019 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.
