Haddon Heights Electronic Waste Recycling Program, Beginning August 1st

On January 1, 2011 the “ELECTRONIC WASTE MANAGEMENT ACT” took effect. With passage of this new law, residents are now required to recycle televisions, laptop & personal computers, and computer monitors known as e-waste. Electronic devices covered under this law are to be disposed of at an approved electronic recycling facility. This is crucial because recycling your electronic devices keeps dangerous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and chromium from being released into the environment. Your Governing Body decided to take a proactive approach by offering an efficient collection site to recycle your e-waste. Beginning August 1, 2013 you can now drop off your e-waste Monday thru Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Haddon Heights Department of Public Works at 514 West Atlantic Ave. The following are accepted electronic recycling items:
