Camden County residents can recycle electronics Saturday

    Saturday must be spring cleaning day in the Delaware Valley.

    Philadelphia is holding its annual Spring Cleanup around the city, and Camden County is collecting residents’ e-waste.

    From 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. tomorrow, residents can recycle their electronics at a drive-through station at the Camden County Public Works Complex.
    “Now that there is a state law in place prohibiting municipalities from picking up these items in the curbside trash, this is the perfect opportunity for residents to properly dispose of unwanted televisions and computer equipment,” Freeholder Jeffrey Nash said when the event was announced. Nash is the liaison to the Camden County Division of Environmental Affairs, and the Freehold Board is sponsoring the event.

    So what can you unload? Computers, keyboards, VCRs, scanners, DVD players, tape players, monitors, stereo equipment, typewriters, printers, TVs, laptops, modems, telecommunication equipment, fax machines, adios, answering machines and telephones.
