Disposing of Hazardous Household Waste

Dutchess County Resource Recovery Agency 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 & 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.
