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 Avenue between 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.

TERRACYCLE:

Haddon Township has partnered with the eco-company Terracycle to “outsmart waste.” The Township collects  approved, Terracycle “brigade” items  and then ships these items to Terracycle where this trash is upcycled into products. In turn, Terracycle will donate one cent or two cents for each item collected to our designated local, animal shelter.

Please, do not bring  Terracycle to the municipal building. Terracyle can be brought to the the Department of Public Works during normal business hours.DO NOT LEAVE ITEMS AFTER HOURS.
