OCRRA doesn't actually pick up trash and recycling from residents. In Onondaga County, trash can either be picked up at the curb by a waste hauler, or you can bring it to our Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site in Jamesville.
Our community's trash becomes an energy source through OCRRA's Waste-to-Energy Facility.
If your hauler doesn’t regularly pick something up, it doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of it. OCRRA provides simple drop-off solutions for disposing of bulky items and construction waste:
Bulky waste includes things like carpeting, furniture, mattresses and large appliances. If it exceeds 6’ in any dimension, it’s considered bulky waste. Waste like this from households can be dropped off at OCRRA’s Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site during residential hours weekday evenings and Saturday mornings. If you have bulky materials from a business, they can be dropped off at OCRRA's Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site during commercial hours weekdays during the day.
Construction and Demolition Disposal
Debris from household construction, demolition and remodeling can be brought to OCRRA’s Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site during residential hours weekday evenings and Saturday mornings. C&D from a business or delivered by a business can be brought to the Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site during commercial hours weekdays during the day. All loads must be tarped. The materials are sorted, and most of it is converted to electricity at the Waste-to-Energy Facility. What can’t be processed there is landfilled.
