Need a gently used bike? Bike auction happens promptly at noon. Bring your ewaste for recycling, papers for shredding, household stuff for Goodwill, blankets and unwearable clothing for New Jersey Aid For Animals. And so much more!
E-WASTE ( ELECTRONIC WASTE) : DO NOT PLACE AT THE CURB
The Township is - once again – able to collect items such as televisions, cell phones, or “anything with a plug” at the Department of Public Works located at 504 Oneida Ave. 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.)
Haddon Township is a SILVER certified Sustainable Jersey community.
Haddon Township is one of only 27 communities in New Jersey to have achieved a silver level of certification. (Currently, a gold level of certification does not exist.) To become Sustainable Jersey certified, the Township had to complete a balance of rigorous sustainability actions.
