Our Mission

Rethink Your Waste is here to help with anything related to garbage, recycling and Household Hazardous Waste in Niagara County, New York! 

As a Division of the Niagara County Department of Public Works, this site is dedicated to bringing attention to the solid waste management issues and events in our community, and provides tools for residents to increase waste reduction, recycling, and composting at home, work and school. By strengthening the relationship between solid waste management and the environment, we are ultimately improving the quality of life in Niagara County.

There will be four Household Hazardous Waste drop-off events for residential customers in Niagara County in 2014.  For your protection and ours, all HHW drop-offs are by APPOINTMENT ONLY. For more information, see our HHW Page.

You can schedule appointments using the link below:

Non District members (residents of Niagara, Cambria, Wilson and Newfane) are welcome to participate, however please bring a check of $19, payable to the “Niagara County Refuse Disposal District.”

Sprint/Summer 2014.

Spring is finally here! Perhaps you'd like to give composting a try this year? The stuff that was long buried under snow is a good start. Composting is simple, just find a spot in your yard and make a pile. Every now and then turn it and add water.

We have three Household Hazardous Waste events planned this year. The first in North Tonawanda on 4/26, second in Niagara Falls on 6/7 and third in Lockport on 8/16. Be sure to schedule an appointment to participate! All events are from 10am to 2pm. There may be a fourth, depending on resources, and it will take place in the Town of Lewiston in September or October.
