In Onondaga County, your trash can either be picked up at the curb by a waste hauler, or you can bring it yourself to one of our drop-off sites (get details on acceptable items, hours and fees). From there, residual metal and cardboard are removed and the remainder becomes an energy source for our community through our waste-to-energy program.
Also, 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 can be dropped off at one of OCRRA’s two drop-off sites.
Construction and Demolition Disposal
Large volumes of debris from construction, demolition and remodeling can be brought to OCRRA’s Ley Creek Drop-Off Site. There it is sorted, and most of it is converted to electricity at the Waste-to-Energy Facility. What can’t be processed there is landfilled.
Customers with small amounts of material, a pickup truckload or less, may use the Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site, where they will need to unload it, by hand, into an elevated container. All loads must be tarped.
