Orange County holds Hazardous Waste Events at four different locations throughout the County.  The next event of the year will be announced once the date of the previously scheduled event has passed.

Friday events are for Schools, Farms, Municipalities and Businesses.  Registration is required and residents may not attend.  Fees are charged based on the amount of household hazardous waste that is being disposed of.  Per NYSDEC regulations, only 220 lbs of hazardous waste can be brought by each participant at a household hazardous waste event for schools, farms, municipalities and businesses.  Please click on the link below for registration forms and dates.

Saturday events are for Orange County Residents only.  No schools, farms, municipalities or businesses can attend the Resident event.  Resident events are free and are intended for residential amounts of household hazardous waste only.  If you have a business that is now closed, you still need to register for the Friday event.  We accept residential amounts of household hazardous waste only at resident events.  For more information, please call our Recycling Coordinator, Ermin Siljkovic at (845) 291-3246 or click on the links below.
