Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off on Saturday, July 13

Jul 09, 2024

Residents can dispose of household hazardous items safely on Saturday, July 13, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the ACUA Environmental Park located at 6700 Delilah Road in Egg Harbor Township.
Most Atlantic County residents have hazardous waste in their cabinets, basements, or garages but may not realize these items cannot go in their regular trash cans. Hazardous items include cleaning products, motor oils, weed killer, oil-based paints, auto care products, and items like rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Hazardous waste can pollute our local waterways and the environment. These items can also endanger sanitation workers or cause truck fires if placed in the trash.
ACUA’s Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off is convenient – residents do not even need to exit their vehicle! Residents will need to provide proof of Atlantic County residency such as a driver’s license or a tax bill. Participants may bring materials from more than one Atlantic County household, so residents can help a family member or neighbor to save travel time and gas.
Residents are encouraged to visit for a comprehensive list of accepted items. Items should be placed in a recyclable or disposable container, such as a cardboard box, that can be safely removed from the vehicle and discarded. Containers will not be returned.
To safely package and transport household hazardous waste, please keep all products in original containers or other container if not possible; wrap leaking containers in newspaper and place in plastic bag or garbage container; place items securely in a box for transport; keep chemicals which could react with one another separated; and do not leave materials in hot, unventilated areas for long periods of time.
The maximum amount of household hazardous material allowed for disposal is 20 gallons and/or 200 pounds (dry weight) per household.
Additional drop-offs will be held on October 5 and November 9, 2024.
In addition to accepting hazardous waste, visitors may also donate reusable bags to be sanitized and used at local food banks.
