Hazardous Waste Collection Saturday


Share post:

If you’ve been cleaning out your garage this spring, you’ve probably come across a few items that shouldn’t be tossed in the regular garbage as they can poison our soil and groundwater.  So don’t miss the County’s Hazardous Waste Collection Day tomorrow, Saturday May 1, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Essex County Fleet Maintenance Garage at 99 West Bradford Avenue in Cedar Grove.

Items accepted include household alkaline batteries, florescent light bulbs, oil-based paints (not latex), fire extinguishers, gasoline, kerosene, pesticides, herbicides, paint thinners and solvents.  Here’s a full list of items that will be accepted and not accepted, or call 973-857-2350 for more information.
