Otsego County's 18th Annual

Household Hazardous Waste Day

September 11th & 12th 2015!




This widely attended event allows local residents the opportunity to bring household hazardous waste, enamel paints, pesticides, antifreeze, batteries and much more FREE of CHARGE for disposal. This past year 610 cars from an estimated 700 households brought various hazardous materials for disposal.

The hazardous waste collection day is an annual public service provided by the Otsego County Board of Representatives.  Funds to cover the costs of this event come from the county’s Solid Waste User Fee, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and the Otsego County Conservation Association (OCCA). The pharmaceutical/medication collection was made possible through the generous donations from: The Goodyear Lake Association, Otsego Lake Association, Otsego County Conservation Association (OCCA), Cornell Cooperative Extension, Otsego 2000 and Otsego Land Trust.
