Welcome to Niagara County's webpage dedicated to assist residents and businesses with managing their garbage, recycling, and household hazardous wastes!

A little about us... we are a combination of the Niagara County Department of Public Works and the Refuse Disposal District, with a responsibility of bringing attention to the solid waste management issues and events in our community, provide tools for residents to increase waste reduction, recycling, and composting at home, work and school and managed the environmental liability of the county's historical landfilling operations. We believe that strengthening the relationship between solid waste management and the environment, we are ultimately improving the quality of life in Niagara County.

We are proud to work with the Niagara County Sheriff's Office to provide free, no-questions-asked pharmaceutical waste disposal in Lockport, Lewiston and Niagara Falls with three more sites to open in 2015!

We also host Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off Events. Appointments are required for participation. If you would like to learn more about participating or would like to schedule an appointment, please visit our HHW Page.

January 2015.

Electronic Waste, as of January 1, cannot get placed at the curb for collection per New York State Law. If your community does not have a drop-off site, you may contact the manufacturer or take the items to Best Buy.

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! We expect to announce three more drop off sites in 2015!
