Due to COVID-19 precautions, OCRRA and Miller Environmental Group are doing their part to minimize virus spread by pausing household toxics drop off appointments until further notice. Please join our email list to be made aware when the appointment system is back up and running. We apologize for any inconvenience.
In the interim, if you have extenuating circumstances, such as an imminent house closing, please call OCRRA at (315) 453-2866 or email us at email@example.com to discuss alternate options.
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.
Please wait until you have at least a box full of toxics ready for drop off before making an appointment. Consider asking friends or neighbors if they have items you can bring in for them. While you collect them, store items in a safe area, away from children and pets.
This program is free to residents, however, OCRRA pays a flat fee for each appointment, regardless of the number of items you bring in. We appreciate you helping to keep costs down by bringing items in in bulk, so that we can continue to offer this essential service at no charge.
When you make an appointment you'll receive instructions on how to prepare your items and where to bring them (Miller Environmental - off Hiawatha Blvd.) in 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.
