CAMDEN, NJ — Camden County residents can drop off any outdated and unused electronic items during the next drive-through household Electronics Recycling Collection on Saturday, Nov. 2.
From 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Camden County Public Works Complex, located at 2311 Egg Harbor Road in Lindenwold, residents will be able to drop off a variety of components used in household electronics, including metals, plastics, and glass, Freeholder Jeff Nash.
“Additionally, it’s important to properly dispose of products that may contain environmentally harmful materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium," Nash said.
Items accepted at no charge include TVs and monitors, computers, keyboards, VCRs, scanners, DVD players, tape players, stereo equipment, typewriters, printers, laptops, modems, telecommunication equipment, fax machines, radios, answering machines and telephones.
“We all have a pile of outdated, broken, or unwanted electronics somewhere at home, and this is an excellent, responsible way to finally dispose of them,” Nash said. “Everything brought to the public works complex will either be refurbished for future use or recycled to help protect the environment.”
