Household Waste - Medicines & Hazardous

⇒ For information specific to RECYCLING, visit our recycling page.

The convenience center is a location on the Salem County Improvement Authority’s Solid Waste Division grounds where residents can deliver bulky items from cleaning out their garage, attic or from a do-it-yourself project around their home. There is a charge for what is delivered and it is determined by weight in most cases.

Items for disposal will be accepted on Wednesday and Saturday ONLY, from 8am to 3pm.

Important notes:

  • Household recyclables WILL NOT be accepted at the convenience center.
  • We do not accept lithium ion batteries from hover boards.
  • Properly Dispose of Medication! For more information, visit the DEA website “National Take-Back Initiative”.
  • Household hazardous waste items cannot be disposed of like regular trash. These items are listed HERE.
  • Home Yard Waste: Wood, brush, grass and leaves can be composted (which is a form of recycling) which is easily done. Composting these materials can save landfill space by 30%. Composting is easy at home in a homemade bin or purchase an “Earth Machine” composter from SCIA/SWD to make the job easy. Layer your organic material (leaves, weeds, grass) inside and sprinkle with water. Turn the mixture once a week to aerate and keep moist. The organic material produces “heat” that decomposes the material. Within weeks, you have made a “soil amendment” from these composted materials, which can be put back into your garden or flower beds.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How will I know how much I will have to pay?
Your vehicle delivering the material will be weighed in “full” on our inbound scale, then you will be directed where to go to off-load.. All loads must be off-loaded by hand. Once, all materials are off-loaded, you will drive onto the outbound scale and your vehicle will be weighed again, which will be the “empty” weight. The difference between the two weights is what you pay for. It averages out to around 3 3/4 cents per pound. Example: A couch will weigh more than tree branches. Tree branches will take up more space, but the couch will weigh much more.

How can I pay?
The convenience center accepts cash and checks with a valid driver’s license. There is a $50.00 charge for bounced checks. We also accept credit cards with an additional 2.5% added onto the total amount.

Can I bring more than one load a day?
Yes, you can deliver more than one load if you can be completely off-loaded by 3pm.

Are there any items I can’t bring?
Yes, we do not accept household, everyday trash and household recyclables. These items must be left curbside or dropped off at your local center in your municipality. The convenience center is permitted to accept only bulky waste as a “convenience” to our residents, so they don’t have to wait several days for their local township to pick up.

What are Household Hazardous Wastes?
Hazardous wastes in the home usually come from ordinary household products such as cleaning fluids, solvents, thinners, oil-based paints, gasoline, kerosene, mercury switches and thermometers, fluorescent bulbs, batteries (both small, sealed lead acid and rechargeable), used motor oil, used oil filters, automotive and garden care products.

What makes ordinary household products hazardous wastes?
When oil-based paint, batteries or used motor oil are thrown in the trash can or poured down the sewer, the chemical substance, or residue, becomes a hazardous waste. These household hazardous wastes become environmental pollutants when unwisely managed or illegally disposed. Look on the container labels for the words danger, warning, caution or poison symbols.

Some household hazardous wastes can be recycled like used motor oil. Once re-fined, it can be sold and used again like a new product. Households are the single largest group of hazardous waste generators in the U.S. every day millions of households dispose of tons of hazardous waste in very unsafe ways. It has been found that public health and safety and our environment are threatened when hazardous wastes are not managed properly.

Separate hazardous waste from your household garbage and do not throw out hazardous waste with your regular household garbage. Never dispose of any hazardous waste into the sewer system because city sewage treatment plants are not designed to destroy toxic chemicals. The hazardous waste could end up in the city’s drinking water or discharged into streams. Do not pour into bodies of water, on the ground or into storm drains. Disposal this way can wash the hazardous waste into lakes, streams and rivers and pollute the groundwater and surrounding environment.

What can I do with my Household Hazardous wastes?
Participate in Salem County’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program that is held four times a year, the third Saturday of April, June, August and October.  April and August events are held at the SCIA/Solid Waste Division, located at 52 McKillip Road in Alloway. The June event is in Pennsville at the end of Industrial Park Road (old Pennsville Landfill) and the August event is held at the Upper Pittsgrove Convenience Center located at 190 Groff Road in Upper Pittsgrove.
