(Lindenwold, NJ) – The next drive-through household Electronics Recycling Collection sponsored by the Freeholder Board will take place on Saturday, October 7. Drop off your outdated and unused items from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Camden County Public Works Complex, 2311 Egg Harbor Road in Lindenwold.
“This is the perfect opportunity for residents to properly dispose of unwanted electronic equipment,” Nash said. “Recycling these items will prevent harmful materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium from being released into the environment.”
Items accepted at no charge include TVs and monitors, computers, keyboards, VCRs, scanners, DVD players, tape players, stereo equipment, typewriters, printers, laptops, modems, telecommunication equipment, fax machines, radios, answering machines and telephones.
“With such rapid advancements in technology, I’m sure there are residents out there with electronics piling up – multiple computers or phones for example,” Nash said. “If you bring those electronics to this free event, everything will either be refurbished for future use or recycled to help protect the environment.”
Camden County’s drive-through program provides one of the easiest and most convenient ways for all Camden County residents to chip in when it comes to creating a better environment for us all. It is a priority of the Freeholder Board to provide this service to residents. By disposing of this material properly we keep it out of our waste stream and prevent it from making its way to our waterways.
