Recycling Events

New in 2020...New York State passed the Paint Stewardship Bill which will allow residents a very convenient and free option to dispose of paint!  This is a tremendous opportunity for residents and a cost savings for the County.  More details are expected later this year.  Because of the changes to Paint, the Niagara County Department of Public Works will wait to announce our Household Hazardous Waste drop-off events for 2020.   Please check back in late February.
