The Camden County Freeholder Board will host an E-waste Collection Day on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Pennsauken Landfill, located at 9600 River Road in Pennsauken Township.
“With such rapid advancements in technology, I’m sure there are residents out there with electronics piling up,” Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the PCFA, said. “When you upgrade and replace your old electronics with new ones, drop them off to be recycled free of charge.”Camden County residents are also invited to drop off their outdated and unwanted electronics at the facility during the PCFA’s normal business hours Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Items will be collected at no charge, including: computers, keyboards, VCRs, scanners, DVD players, tape players, monitors, stereo equipment, typewriters, printers, TVs, laptops, modems, telecommunication equipment, radios, fax machines, answering machines and telephones.
“Since state law prohibits municipalities from picking up these items in the curbside trash, this is the perfect opportunity for residents to properly dispose of unwanted televisions and computer equipment,” Nash said. “Recycling these items will prevent harmful materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium from being released into the environment.
