Ocean County Household Hazardous Waste Schedule Expands

Superstorm Sandy is generating mammoth amounts of debris as houses are reconditioned. Most of it will find a spot in recycling centers or landfills. But for every house that was compromised by water, there cleaners, solvents, pesticides and aerosol cans that were ruined. Ocean County officials have set five disposal dates in December.
