The ecopark is an innovative partnership between Monroe County and Waste Management of NY that provides county residents with a “one-stop drop-off” to dispose of or recycle certain items. The ecopark is a residential drop-off facility (no businesses* - see below) and, except for household hazardous waste (HHW) materials, residents are responsible for unloading their own vehicle.
The ecopark has two categories of drop-off services (click on each category for full details):
- Regular Collections - Open weekly (Wed. - Sat., 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.) to accept items like: ewaste, scrap metal, clothing (for donation), curbside recyclables, bulky plastics, etc.
- Special Collections - Open several times monthly to accept all Regular Collection items AND HHW (appointment required only for HHW), unwanted medications, refrigerant-containing appliances ($15 fee each) and passenger vehicle tires ($3 fee each), cathode ray tube TVs/monitors ($10 fee each).
Regular Collection hours can be found on ecopark Hours of Operation. Special Collection dates and times can be found by clicking on the Special Collections Calendar and HHW Appointment Scheduler. Schedule an online appointment via the above link or by calling 753-7600 Option #3 (M-F, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. - except holidays) ONLY if you want to drop-off materials listed under Household Hazardous Waste. Unwanted medications, passenger vehicle tires ($3 per tire), refrigerant-containing appliances ($15 each) and cathode ray tube TVs/monitors ($10 each) can only be dropped-off during Special Collections, but no appointment is required. Fees are only payable via credit/debit card and are collected by Waste Management (tires and refrigerant-containing appliances) and Sunnking (cathode ray tube TVs/monitors).
The list of new services does not stop there. We have created the ecopark "Prospector." See it on the right of this page. It is a searching tool to help you find local businesses and services that can help you recycle or dispose of things responsibly. After choosing an item in the ecopark Prospector you will be given disposal and/or recycling options. Whether you choose to use the ecopark itself or any of the listed convenient vendors, you will be helping the environment by keeping these materials from our community's waters and landfills. We are very fortunate to have many companies locally that will take your difficult to handle items and provide proper disposal, recycling or reuse.
*The facility does not accept material from businesses, not-for-profits, governments, churches, home-offices, institutions, etc. These entities should contact their waste hauler for recycling/disposal options. Certain qualified small businesses may manage their chemical wastes through the county's Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator Program--click here for details.
