Recycling Events

We had some big plans in 2020, but just like everyone else we need to make adjustments!  The Niagara County Legislature recognizes that many residents are in need of safe disposal options for common household chemicals.  For the remainder of 2020 we have restarted our Household Hazardous Waste Voucher Program.
