Household Items

Onondaga County residents (with the exception of Skaneateles) may bring up to 20 gal. of acceptable liquids & up to 30 lbs. of acceptable solids through OCRRA’s Household Toxics Management Program. Containers may be no larger than 5 gallons. Fees may apply beyond the stated limits.

*These items are acceptable if brought in with other materials. They can also be managed outside this program. Click the links above for year-round options that do not require making a household hazardous waste appointment.

Search OCRRA’s database to find the right way to get rid of household toxics we do not accept.

The costs associated with OCRRA’s Household Toxics Program are underwritten by OCRRA and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
