#1 - Reduce

Remember to plan ahead when purchasing: buy only the amount of product you need so you don’t have to dispose of excess later.

#2 - Reuse

If products are still usable, give them to someone who can use it. This waste reduction effort has the added bonus of spreading good will!

#3 - Dispose

OCRRA accepts HOUSEHOLD hazardous waste materials at a special drop-off location on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, as well as the first Saturday of each Month. You must make a reservation in advance. Please note: This is open to residents in OCRRA’s service area only, which does not include residents in the town and village of Skaneateles.

Business materials are NOT accepted. Review the NYSDEC’s hazardous waste management guide for small businesses.

While OCRRA provides this service for free, in reality, it costs about $96.50 per vehicle, to safely manage these materials! This is just one of the many great environmental 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.
