Did you know, since 1990 Onondaga County has recycled more than 11 million tons of material? Help keep that number rising and get a new Blue Bin. This event is free and open to the public.
OCRRA Recycling Aide, Allison Stuart, says, "Visit Green Hills and walk away with a Blue Bin or two. OCRRA will be on hand to answer your recycling questions; you can also pick up fridge magnets that explain the simple rules of recycling."
City of Syracuse residents can also get a new Blue Bin by calling 448-2489. Onondaga County residents living outside the City can get a new Blue Bin by visiting their town or village highway garage. For info on where your highway garage is located, visit: ocrra.org/recycling_bluebins.asp#bluebin
About OCRRA: OCRRA is a not-for-profit public benefit corporation created by the New York State Legislature to manage the solid waste, or large amounts of trash, produced in Onondaga County. The organization is responsible for providing options for the safe disposal of garbage and the recycling of items that were once sent to a landfill.
It is not an arm of County Government, nor does it receive tax support for its programs. The majority of OCRRA's revenue is generated from fees users pay to deliver trash to our locations, as well as the sale of energy created at the self-sufficient Waste-to-Energy Facility in Jamesville, NY.
