Hazardous Waste

Materials such as latex and oil based paints, solvents, driveway sealers, anti-freeze, batteries, waste oil, fluorescent lights and ballasts are considered hazardous materials, and must be disposed of separately. Tabernacle Township, Shamong Township and Medford Lakes Borough have combined services to allow residents from these towns access to a once-a-month drop-off of hazardous materials. No pool chemicals, pesticides or materials of an explosive nature (Example: propane tanks, gasoline, etc.) will be accepted at these drop-off locations. 

*Residents must provide proof of residency when dropping off hazardous materials at any of the three locations.  Winter schedules may be cancelled due to snow emergencies.  Residents are asked to call ahead to verify drop-off should weather be a factor.
