(Lindenwold, NJ) – The next drive-through household Electronics Recycling Collection sponsored by the Freeholder Board will take place on Saturday, Nov. 2. Camden County residents can drop off any outdated and unused items from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Camden County Public Works Complex, located at 2311 Egg Harbor Road in Lindenwold.
“Many of the components used in household electronics, including metals, plastics, and glass, can be recycled for future use, saving energy and reducing the environmental impact of producing new materials,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash. “Additionally, it’s important to properly dispose of products that may contain environmentally harmful materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium.”
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.
“We all have a pile of outdated, broken, or unwanted electronics somewhere at home, and this is an excellent, responsible way to finally dispose of them,” Nash said. “Everything brought to the public works complex 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.
