OCRRA’s Ley Creek Transfer Station in Liverpool, which has been primarily serving residential customers for the past two years, will close until further notice following its regular hours on Saturday, June 11, 2022. Residential customers will now be welcomed at OCRRA’s Rock Cut Road Transfer Station in Jamesville starting Monday, June 13, 2022 with some new days and hours of service.
The switch to the Rock Cut Road Transfer Station will expand the number of days Onondaga County residents can drop off their wastes.
Rock Cut Road Residential Hours Starting June 13, 2022:
Monday – Friday, 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Saturday, 8:00 am - noon
The Rock Cut Road Transfer Station also serves commercial customers. To accommodate all of the transfer station’s potential users, and due to large commercial truck traffic and safety concerns, residential traffic will be segregated from commercial customers. Commercial customers can only access the transfer station weekdays until 2:30 pm. OCRRA asks that residential customers do not arrive early to the Rock Cut Road Transfer Station in order to assure everyone’s safety and ease of use at the facility. Unfortunately, residential customers will be turned away if they show up during commercial drop-off hours because of these concerns.
All aspects of OCRRA’s Rock Cut Road Transfer Station’s commercial services will continue unchanged and will not be affected by residential services starting on June 13.
“Rock Cut Road’s residential prices will be the same as they were at Ley Creek, and services will be nearly identical,” said Kevin Spillane, OCRRA’s executive director. “Residents will still be able to drop off their trash, recycling, construction and demolition materials, appliances, mattresses, tires and food scraps. However, there will be a few items that we cannot take at the new facility because they fall under new regulations.”
Rock Cut Road’s New York State Department of Environmental Conservation operating permit is different than Ley Creek’s permit because of the change in regulations for the upgraded Rock Cut Road facility. As a result, the Rock Cut Road Transfer Station is not able to accept batteries, fluorescent bulbs, mercury thermometers and mercury thermostats. There are other options available for the safe disposal of these items and we ask residents to visit OCRRA.org for these options.
Once Ley Creek closes on June 11, OCRRA will continue the planning and evaluation process to determine the next steps for the site.
