Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro said, “Dutchess County’s 10-year solid waste management plan, Rethinking Waste, includes efforts to increase recycling, reduce our impact on the environment and create a more sustainable waste system. Biannual collection events such as this make significant progress in helping us reach those goals. I encourage Dutchess County residents to utilize our Household Hazardous Waste Disposal & Electronics Recycling events to dispose of unwanted electronic equipment, unused chemicals and fertilizers, and many other hazardous household items and materials.”
 

The Household Hazardous Waste Disposal & Electronics Recycling Event provides residents with a safe and responsible way to discard a diverse range of household items that cannot be disposed of through regular recycling or garbage bins. Acceptable items include television sets, computer monitors, telephones, pesticides, pool chemicals, and more.  A complete list of acceptable items to bring to this disposal day is included below.

The Dutchess County Division of Solid Waste Management collection events are partially funded by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
