Hazardous Waste Drop-off for Atlantic County

It is that time again!  Bring all your hazardous waste to the drop-off this Saturday instead of dumping it down the sewers.  I know some people in my neighborhood do this , because there is a scour hole in MY backyard.  I see the paint and the oil and the pesticides and the everything else as it trickles out of the sewer pipe, and into our beautiful town lake.    For all my readers who do not live in my county, please look for your own Hazardous waste disposal day in YOUR county. 


Here is the Official Announcement:



Atlantic County residents will be able to drop-off household hazardous waste from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 6th, 2010 at the  Atlantic County Utilities Authority Environmental Park located at 6700 Delilah Road in Egg Harbor Township.
The next household hazardous waste drop-off date is scheduled for 9 – 2 pm on Saturday, January 8th, 2011 at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority Environmental Park located at 6700 Delilah Road in Egg Harbor Township.
The household hazardous waste program is open to Atlantic County residents only. Those wishing to participate must bring proof of residency. The maximum amount of household hazardous material allowed for disposal is 30 gallons and/or 200 pounds (dry weight) per household. Participants may bring materials from more than one household, which can save you and a friend or neighbor time and gas money.
Materials cannot be brought in containers that exceed five gallons and no containers will be returned, no exceptions. Most importantly, before bringing a material please be sure that it is an acceptable product. For more information, please call (609) 272-6950 or visit the ACUA’s website at www.acua.com/hhw .
