Recycle Your Electronics and Chemicals on Sept. 21

Mercer County will host a Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste Disposal Day for residents.

On Saturday, Sept. 21, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Mercer County Improvement Authority will host a Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste Disposal Day for County residents who would like to recycle common residential chemical wastes or used electronics.  

The event will take place at the John T. Dempster Fire School at 350 Lawrence Station Road in Lawrence, rain or shine. 

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 Jan. 1, 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. 

Acceptable household 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.

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