Household Hazardous Waste

Our HHW event will take place Saturday October 20, 2018.

The annual fall Cayuga County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) day event is a great opportunity for all Cayuga County residents to properly dispose of common (and sometimes not so common) household hazardous wastes FOR FREE!  This proper disposal protects human health, our community and the environment.

Registration is required as well as having an entrance ticket. Register here!   If you have questions after registration, please call: Peggy Lillie at 315-255-1183 Ext 238 or stop in to the office.  If you do not have a printer, but do have an email please continue with registration and then call to obtain an entrance ticket. At the end of the registration process you will be presented (both in the thank you message as well as a confirmation email) with the link to print out the entrance ticket.
