The Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency will be hosting a FREE Household Hazardous Waste and Pharmaceutical Waste Collection Event on Saturday, April 18 from 8am to 2pm at 999 Flatbush Road in Kingston. 

Register NOW

Since its inception in the early 1990s, more than 25,000 Ulster County residents have safely disposed of more than 2,000,000 lbs. of household hazardous waste through these collection events. With the recent addition of the expired medication take-back program, quantities of materials being collected are increasing with each event. Last year, over 1,600 lbs. of expired medications were collected at the events. "By offering alternatives for the safe disposal of household hazardous waste, Ulster County is taking a proactive role in protecting the environment and public health by preventing these items from ending up in landfills or contaminating water sources and wastewater treatment plants", said Timothy Rose, UCRRA Executive Director.

No more than 220 pounds or 25 gallons per household of cleaning, maintenance and paint products that are labeled as toxic, poisonous, caustic, flammable, ignitable, corrosive, caution, warning, danger or hazardous will be accepted at the event.

Acceptable materials for the collection event will also include automotive products (i.e. transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze, kerosene and gasoline), pesticides & herbicides, small propane tanks, solvents & thinners, varnishes & waxes, household cleaners & corrosives, pool & photographic chemicals,  mercury switches & thermometers, fluorescent bulbs, oil-based paints, car batteries and expired/unused over-the-counter or prescription medications.

Unacceptable materials are latex paint, used motor oil, tires, medical waste, smoke detectors, unidentified waste, commercial and industrial waste, explosives, ammunition and appliances containing Freon such as air conditioners, refrigerators and dehumidifiers.  Latex paint is not hazardous and can be disposed of in the garbage only if it is no longer in liquid form. Solidify paint by either air drying small quantities or by using an absorbent material like sawdust or clay-based kitty litter. Oil-based paint should be brought to a household hazardous waste collection event.

Event update: Participants are being asked to bring food donations and textiles for distribution to Ulster County families in need.  Acceptable food donations include shelf-stable food items and non-food items such as paper goods, personal hygiene products and cleaning supplies. UCRRA will be collecting textiles, including clothing, shoes, accessories (belts, hats, etc.) linens, curtains, bedding etc. Instead of tossing your clothing into the trash, bring it to the collection event on April 18th in Kingston.
