MAJOR CHANGES to HADDON TOWNSHIP’S E-WASTE RECYCLING!

Due to the current difficulties in the recycling of e-waste, the Township will suspend all collection of e-waste until further notice as of April 19th.

After that date, one last collection will take place at the “Go Green Event” on April 23, 2016. The Township has been one of the very few municipalities which had continued to offer e-waste recycling despite the difficult climate. However, due to the severity of the issue, the Township will no longer be able to collect these items until the issue is resolved.

Do not place e-waste  at the curb.

Camden County will offer a limited e-waste collection at the selected events. For more information, go to:

PATCO Westmont Viaduct Project–Work to begin the week of 4/25/16.

PATCO is embarking on a viaduct restoration project this year from Chestnut Avenue to Carlton Avenue. Work on the safety railing, which is at the track level, has begun and the bulk of the heavy construction will start in the early spring.  This is an approximately 30 month long project.

This project will rehabilitate the rails, fasteners and supports along the viaducts that support the PATCO train along a two thousand foot section of the PATCO line adjacent to the Westmont Station.  PATCO will continue to operate throughout the length of this project.  Normal service will continue during the week with single track operation around the construction zone from Friday evening to early Monday morning.

To keep PATCO service running without interruption, work will take place on only one track at a time, beginning in the area of Carlton Avenue and proceeding westbound (toward Pennsylvania) ending at Chestnut Avenue. When that side of the track is completed, work will move to the other track and again move westbound toward the end of the work at Chestnut Avenue.

Road closures, detours and “No parking” areas along municipal streets may occur during the weekend construction periods. All closures and detours will be coordinated with local agencies and advance notification will be provided. Approximately 30 parking spots on PATCO property will be unavailable on weekends, and 45 spots will be unavailable for the duration of the project at the farthest east parking lot in the vicinity of the Irish Mile.

Expect the typical construction noise, such as jack hammers, trucks, loaders, and back-up alarms and noise levels will be monitored continuously throughout the project.

A targeted mailing will provide information to nearby neighbors regarding this project.  Additional information and regular updates will be posted on www.ridepatco.org or call our information line at 888-930-5150.
