Have to get ride of things, I'll Hazard(ous waste) a guess! Essex County Annual Hazardous Waste Elimnation Day

If you’ve got a pile of “hazardous waste” sitting around at home, Saturday is your day to get rid of it safely and responsibly.

Essex County – in partnership with the Essex County Utilities Authority – will sponsor their annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Saturday, May 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Old Essex County Hospital Center, 125 Fairview Ave., in Cedar Grove.

The program is free, but only open to Essex County residents. Materials for disposal should be placed in containers that are smaller than five gallons or 10 pounds. Residents are not charged when they bring materials, but they must provide proof of residency at the site. Commercial businesses may not drop off materials.

County workers will be accepting several types of “hazardous waste” at the event, including:

Pesticides and herbicides
Paint thinners and solvents
Barbecue propane tanks
Automotive fluids such as antifreeze, motor oil and steering fluid
Pool chemicals
Florescent light bulbs
Lithium and NiCad batteries
Products containing mercury
Gasoline and kerosene
Household cleaning products
Hazardous materials not being accepted include: latex paint (which can be dried and disposed of with regular waste), unlabeled or unidentifiable materials, asbestos, regulated medical or infectious waste, commercial or industrial waste, empty containers, explosives, munitions, ordnance or highly reactive materials, household batteries (AA, AAA, C, D, 9V), smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms.

“There are some materials that should be removed from our regular waste stream because of their hazardous nature,” stated Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo Jr. “This collection day provides our residents a place to properly and safely dispose of contaminants, protecting our precious environment for future generations.”
