Disposing of Hazardous Household Waste

Dutchess County Resource Recovery Agency (DCRRA) is a public benefit corporation created by the New York State Legislature for the purpose of providing solid waste management services for Dutchess County.

Good management of our solid waste (garbage and recyclables) affects every person in our County. DCRRA oversees a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) for our recyclables and a Waste-to-Energy Power Plant for our garbage. The Agency sponsors annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Days for toxic and electronic waste.
