E-WASTE: DO NOT PLACE AT THE CURB

 Electronic waste, commonly referred to as e-waste, is the largest and fastest growing waste stream, thus prompting the State of New Jersey to mandate the recycling of these items which took effect in January of 2011 (N.J.S.A. 13:1E99.  Et seq.). Residents may bring all e-waste ( televisions, computers, anything with a plug, cell phones and ink cartridges) to Public Works located at 504 Oneida Avenuebetween 7 AM and 3 PM, Monday through Friday.

COMPOSTING: Haddon Township offers $25.00 Earth Machine composters to residents.

Composters may be obtained Monday through Friday at the Department of Public Works between the hours of 7 AM and 3PM. Cash or check only.
