Woodbine Mayor William Pikolycky reminds residents and business that its now the law that electronics such as televisions, computers, and monitors be recycled. The Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority Sanitary Landfill Complex, located at CR610 (Woodbine-Petersburg Road—across from Mousetrap Lanes), Woodbine, is one site where this can be done free of charge.
The New Jersey Electronic Waste Management Act P.L.2008 c. 130, which went into effect January 1, 2011, prohibits the landfilling of these consumer Electronics.
When discarded electronics are responsibly recycled finite natural resources are conserved, toxic waste is reduced, and landfill space is saved for future use.
Cape May County residents, businesses, municipalities, public and private institutions, agencies and schools can bring computers, monitors, laptops and all peripherals, TVs, VCRs, telephones, radios and other consumer recycling to the CMCMUA Transfer Station (TS) in Burleigh or the Landfill Complex (SLF) in Woodbine.
Consumer electronics are accepted at no charge. All electronics should be clean and free of debris. Brochures, instruction manuals, and corrugated boxes should be recycled with other paper, NOT with the electronics.
Rechargeable batteries have hazardous components and must be recycled. Visit www.call2recycle to find a nearby drop off location or bring them to the Transfer Station or Landfill Complex. Single use disposable batteries do not have hazardous components. Dispose of single use batteries with regular trash.
“Woodbine residents and business are encouraged to take advantage of this free disposal method which the County is providing for this obligatory form of recycling,” added Mayor Pikolycky. “For clarification call Woodbine Public Works at 861-2371.”
