As you clean up from your 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 located at 1 Perina Boulevard.
- Christmas trees can be recycled curbside as part of your weekly yard-waste pickup, or taken to designated tree-drop location that is set up in the Public Works yard at 1 Perina Boulevard from now through mid-February. Remember: Trees with tinsel/lights, and those that are wrapped in plastic bags will not be collected curbside.
- 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 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. But anything with glitter or foil belongs in the trash! Generally, the fancier the wrapping paper, the less recyclable it is.
- 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, contact the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422.
