Advance registration is required for a recycling collection event coming up in Harrison.

The “Too Toxic to Trash” event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 26 at the municipal building, 1 Municipal Drive.

The event is open to anyone — not just Harrison residents — who wants to dispose of hazardous and electronic waste, according to the township’s partner in the event, Environmental Coordination Services and Recycling.

Household hazardous waste that will be accepted includes paint, paint thinner, cleaning products, pesticides, car and household batteries, light bulbs, fluorescent tubes, pool chemicals, oil, anti-freeze and flammables.

Electronic and Freon waste that will be accepted includes televisions, computers and accessories, printers, cellphones, air conditioning units, dehumidifiers, mini fridges, video game consoles and any other electronics with a cord, screen or circuit board.

Items that will not be accepted include explosives, ammunition and radioactive materials; large appliances; pharmaceuticals, syringes and medical waste; fire extinguishers and smoke detectors; devices containing mercury; compressed gas; and tires.

Fees are charged per pound for certain items — 60 cents for CRT televisions and monitors and 40 cents for all other electronics; 65 cents for devices containing Freon; $1.25 for paint; $2 for all other household hazardous waste; and $1.50 for universal waste.

Propane tanks are taken for $8 apiece.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
