Collection of Harmful Waste
The average household has between three and ten gallons of materials that are potentially hazardous to human health or the environment. Many products in daily use (cleaners, pesticides, solvents) are toxic in our environment to people and ecosystems when disposed of improperly. Gloucester County and Waste Management provide residents two opportunities annually to safely dispose of these items for no charge. Household Harmful Waste Collections are generally held on the third Saturday of April and October.
