Recycling Events

The Niagara County Legislature recognizes that many residents are in need of safe disposal options for common household chemicals, therefore they have expanded the highly successful Household Hazardous Waste Collection program to four (4) events and the convenient voucher program from April through December 2022!   We are also excited to announce that Latex Paint will now be accepted at our local events and in the Voucher Program due to the start of the Paint Stewardship Act passed in 2019.  Please note that event pre-registration is required to participate.
