“These events are designed to provide county residents with a free and relatively easy opportunity to properly dispose of household items that can be harmful to the environment, and which should not find their way into the regular trash disposal stream,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Christine Myers, who is the county governing board’s liaison to the MUA.

“We are pleased the MUA provides free drop-off programs for Morris County resident to make getting rid of household hazardous waste safe, convenient and free,” she added.

Morris County residents who have done their late-summer and fall cleaning projects can drop-off, at no charge, unwanted hazardous materials.

The list of acceptable hazardous materials (http://mcmua.com/sw_hhw_events.asp) include, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, oil-based paints, stains, paint thinners and removers, solvents, automotive fluids, lead acid and rechargeable batteries, pool chemicals, and darkroom chemicals.

Also accepted are aerosol cans (not empty), propane and helium cylinders, small quantities of asbestos (wetted, double bagged and sealed with duct tape-100 pound limit), driveway sealant, roofing tar, fluorescent bulbs, PCB-ballasts, mercury thermometers and switches, household cleaning products, muriatic acid.

Latex paint is not considered hazardous, so it is not accepted (please see the proper preparation at www.MCMUA.com). Explosive or highly reactive materials, such as picric acid or nitro compounds, also will not be accepted.

It is important to note that these events are for residential household waste. Businesses are not permitted to attend these disposal events.
