A copy of the manifest follows.  It is imperative that we have accurate manifests of all wastes that you plan on delivering to any of these locations by Friday, September 19, 2014.  Fax # 201-324-6206.  Anyone who shows up on the HHW collection day with materials that were not manifested or if we did not have a manifest will be turned away – with all their materials. Also, please remember to advise your departments of the importance of delivering these materials in an environmentally safe manner.

In addition, we will again be conducting a continuation of the “Tire Amnesty Program”.  We will accept up to 4 tires per household at no charge to the residents at each of the HHW locations.

Since the new e-waste system is in place and three of these four locations have an e-waste container on site, HCIA staff will be directing the computer and electronic waste to the on-site container.

Reminder:  Due to USDOT regulation changes, LATEX PAINT AND ALKALINE BATTERIES WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED FROM ANYONE.  Please call if you have questions.

As always, if you need further information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.                                                                                                                –      Mary-Ellen
