Spring is here, and many residents will begin that annual ritual of cleaning the garage, basement, and sheds. It’s a great time to look for opportunities to sell or donate used items in good condition thereby reducing waste and promoting recycling. Leftover hazardous household products can be disposed of at one of the free collection days sponsored by the Cumberland County Improvement Authority in conjunction with the City of Millville, the Landis Sewerage Authority, and the Cumberland County Utilities Authority. You can conserve landfill space and help to protect the environment at the same time.
Cumberland County residents may safely dispose of gasoline and kerosene, pesticides and herbicides, used motor oil and antifreeze, transmission fluid, car and lead-acid batteries, oil-based paints, turpentine and thinners, and other solvents. You should store your material in a safe manner until the clean-up day you plan to attend.
The three Household Hazardous Waste and Shredding Events are scheduled for April 22, June 10 and September 9 at the Solid Waste Complex on 169 Jesse Bridge Road, Rosenhayn, NJ (GPS use 169 Jesse Bridge Road, Millville, NJ 08332). There is a limit to the items that will be accepted and residents are encouraged to visit the Cumberland Con ty Improvement Authority website at http://www.ccia-net.com/recycling-program/accepted-items/household-hazardous-waste-days-document-shredding-days.
For more information about these events and other recycling programs in Cumberland County, please contact Anthony Riviera, Director of Recycling and Clean Communities at 856-825-3700 x2010.
