#2 - Dispose

Large household appliances (such as refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, dryers, dehumidifiers, dishwashers, microwaves, etc.) can be accepted at OCRRA’s Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site.

Small household appliances, such as can openers, toasters, blenders, coffee makers and electric knives can go in your curbside trash (not your recycling). They can also be taken to OCRRA’s Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site.

If you dispose of your appliances as trash in your curbside trash or at the Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site, they will go to the Waste-to-Energy Facility in Jamesville. At that facility there are ferrous and non-ferrous metal recovery systems, so metal is actually pulled out of our trash and recycled. Each year more than 10,000 tons of metal is recovered and recycled that way. You can watch a video about the entire process here: www.ocrra.org/waste/waste-to-energy/
