These items should NOT go in the trash or blue bin. OCRRA accepts these items during Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Offs. You must make a reservation in advance

While OCRRA provides this service for free, in reality, it costs about $50 per vehicle, to safely manage these materials!

Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Offs are just one of the many great services OCRRA provides our community. OCRRA’s services are predominantly funded by trash disposal fees and the revenue generated by the sale of electricity at the Waste-to-Energy Facility.
