For the safety of our residents and staff, out of an abundance of caution related to the corona virus, no household hazardous waste drop off appointments are currently being scheduled. Please check back in 3-4 weeks to sign up. Thank you!
From oil-based paints and pesticides, to gasoline and pool chemicals, there are many household items that shouldn’t go in the trash or down the drain. That’s why OCRRA set up a drop-off program specifically for household hazardous wastes. Make an appointment you'll receive instructions on how to prepare your items and where to bring them (Environmental Products and Services - off Hiawatha Blvd.) when you get your appointment confirmation email.
Business materials are not accepted. Residents of the Town and Village of Skaneateles are NOT eligible for this program as these municipalities are not part of the OCRRA service area.
