Site Use Info

Tarps Required

All open vehicles entering the OCRRA Drop-Off Sites MUST have a tarp covering their materials. Tarping prevents trash or recyclables from becoming litter on our roadways. It also prevents customers from being fined up to $1,000 by the DEC.

Untarped vehicles will be charged $25 per visit.


Households may bring clear or translucent 30-gallon trash bags, weighing no more than 25 lbs. a piece, to the Ley Creek Drop-Off Site, during regular business hours.

Each bag must be labeled with an OCRRA trash bag sticker. Stickers may be purchased online, at the Rock Cut Road or the Ley Creek Drop-Off Site, or they may be obtained by mail. To order yours by mail send a check, payable to OCRRA, to 100 Elwood Davis Road, North Syracuse, NY 13212.

Each sticker costs $2.00 and there is a minimum purchase of $20. (Stickers may be purchased in quantities of 10 or more.)


Recyclables from households are accepted at the Ley Creek Drop-Off Site at no charge on the second and fourth Saturday of the month. Residents are responsible for emptying recyclables into the correct container. Items must be loose; they cannot be in bags.

Recyclables (cardboard, paper and containers) from commercial generators are not accepted at the Ley Creek Drop-Off Site.

Commercial generators have various options:

  • If recyclable materials can be transported in blue bins (small quantities that can fit into a car, SUV or van), they can be delivered to the Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site.
  • If materials cannot be managed in blue bins (larger volumes that must be transported via truckload) they can be self-hauled to a local Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).

Speed Limit

All vehicles must abide by the 10 mph speed limit at the site.
