Disposing of Hazardous Waste:

This is the schedule and process for properly disposing of certain hazardous wastes. Keep our aquifer and water supply safe by following these guidelines. Electronics commonly contain lead, mercury and other toxins. Did you know the average CRT monitor has about 7 lbs of lead in it? Disposing in landfills potentially allows this to get into water sources. Safe disposal cost's only $5! Read details below.




Call 463-6020 to register and schedule an appointment, then send a check for $5.00 payable to ‘DCRRA’ Dutchess County Resource Recovery Agency, 96 Sand Dock Road, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601

These events are partially funded by the
NY State Department of Environmental Conservation

This Program Is For Dutchess County Residents Only
