Recycle your Christmas tree, cardboard and other holiday remnants Christmas-tree-recycling.jpg
As you clean up from your family's holiday festivities, remember that a number of items can be recycled either curbside in your big blue can, or by dropping them off at the Department of Public Works at 1 Perina Blvd.
  • Christmas trees can be recycled curbside as part of your weekly yard-waste pickup, or taken to two designated locations for Christmas tree recycling through Friday, Jan. 16, at the Department of Public Works (1 Perina Blvd.) or in the rear of Town Hall (820 Mercer St.). Click here for more information. Remember: trees wrapped in plastic bags will not be collected.
  • Old electronics and broken/unused Christmas lights are considered e-waste, and can't be recycled at the curb or in your blue can. However, they can be dropped off, 24/7, at the e-waste shed in the Public Works yard.
  • Cardboard, wrapping paper and cards can be recycled in your big blue recycling can on your regular trash day. Cardboard must be broken down and placed in your can. Excess cardboard can be dropped off in two designated dumpsters to the rear of the Public Works yard.
These are just a few of the common holiday items that can be recycled in Cherry Hill. For more information, visit the Public Works page on the Township website, or call DPW directly at (856) 424-4422.

Cherry Hill resident Cameron Butts honored at Eagle Scout ceremony COURT OF HONOR Eagle Scout-Cameron Butts dec14.jpg
Last weekend, the Township honored Cameron Butts, a young member of Boy Scout Troop 170 in Cherry Hill, as he earned the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. For his Eagle Scout project, Cameron raised funds for, designed and installed kiosks along the Township's Bunker Hills trails in cooperation with the Cherry Hill Environmental Board. Attaining the rank of Eagle Scout is not an easy task, and it's something just a select few scouts accomplish every year. In Cherry Hill, we have witnessed Eagle Scout ceremonies for dozens of remarkable young men in recent years, and we are proud to recognize their achievement. In the last year, the Environmental Board has overseen four completed Eagle Scout projects, and to date, coordinated a total of 20 Eagle Scout projects that have benefitted open space in Cherry Hill. Please join me in congratulating Cameron on achieving his Eagle Scout rank, and in wishing him all the best in the future.

Cherry Hill Police caution: Parents Who Host Lose the Most Parents Who Host CHPD.png
During this season of holiday celebrations, the Cherry Hill Police Department reminds parents of the dangers of allowing underage teens to consume alcohol, even at home. Many parents believe underage drinking is "a part of growing up," or that it's safer for teens and their friends to drink, as long as it's within the home. However, that's hardly the case. Under New Jersey's underage drinking laws (N.J.S.A. 2C:33-17), parents who provide alcohol to minors may be subject to criminal prosecution and civil penalties, particularly when serving a minor who is subsequently involved in incidents that cause death or injury. Protect yourself and your children when hosting teen parties: Don't supply alcohol or allow it to be consumed at your home; ensure your teen's friends don't bring alcohol into your home, and stay at home when your teen has a party. Talk to other parents about the dangers of serving alcohol at youth events, and report underage drinking. What some people consider a rite of passage can carry serious and long-lasting consequences for everyone involved.
