Welcome to Niagara County's web page 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 had a tremendously successful 2016 collecting Household Hazardoous Wastes!

At our three events this year we collected over 168,000-lbs of hazardous materials and chemicals from 1,500 residents. We are looking forward to our 2017 events!
