Drop off hazardous waste, used electronics on Sept. 28

Post Date:09/23/2019 1:50 PM
TRENTON—The Mercer County Improvement Authority will host a Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste Disposal Day on Saturday, Sept. 28, for County residents who would like to recycle common residential chemical wastes or used electronics.

The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the John T. Dempster Fire School at 350 Lawrence Station Road in Lawrence, rain or shine. While no registration is necessary, the event is open to Mercer County residents only, and attendees will need to show proof of residency, such as a driver’s license. No commercial or industrial waste will be accepted.

The Electronic Waste Management Act, which took effect in 2011, bans disposal of televisions and all personal or portable computers – including desktop, notebook and laptop computers, as well as computer monitors – in the regular waste stream. These items must be recycled, and County residents can do so Sept. 28 at the Dempster facility.

Acceptable chemicals and hazardous waste items include: aerosol cans, used motor oil, propane gas tanks, pesticides and herbicides, car batteries, paint thinner, oil-based paint, stains and varnishes, gasoline, anti-freeze, driveway sealer, insect repellents, mercury, fluorescent and CFL bulbs.

Materials not accepted: no latex paint, no heating oil, no infectious waste, no radioactive materials, no explosives or munitions, no railroad ties, no asbestos, no tires, no wood, no fencing, no air conditioners, no helium or oxygen tanks, no humidifiers, no dehumidifiers, no unknowns.

Acceptable used electronic items include: computers, printers, copiers, fax machines, stereos, televisions, microwaves.
