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.

All 2014 Household Hazardous Waste drop-off events have concluded. Please check back for our list of 2015 dates! 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:

Winter 2014.

Electronic Waste, most notably older televisions and monitors, are becoming increasingly more difficult to managed in Niagara County. Please do NOT place these items to the curb as your hauler cannot legally accept them. We are expecting some relief in 2015, so check back soon!

Do you have any old medications? You can responsibly dispose of them by taking them to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, Town of Lewiston Police Department or to the City of Niagara Falls Police Department. No questions asked!
