Hunterdon County residents looking to safely dispose of hazardous household products have an opportunity this weekend.

The county is hosting a Household Hazardous Waste Cleanup Day on Saturday, August 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will take place at the Route 12 County Complex, located at 314 State Route 12 in Flemington.

Household items, particularly leftovers, often contain corrosive, ignitable, reactive, or toxic components, classifying them as hazardous waste. Disposing of these items improperly — such as pouring them down drains or storm sewers, or including them with regular trash — not only breaches the law but also endangers the environment and human health.

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this event, as no pre-registration is required.

It’s important to note that computers and monitors will not be accepted at the drop-off site.
