Changes Coming to Recycling & Solid Waste Center

Starting March 1st, 2021, the Tompkins County Recycling and Solid Waste Center will be operated under a new contract with Casella Recycling. Changes under the new contract include:

  • Plastic Bags and Films will no longer be accepted for recycling. Clean and dry plastic bags and films can be brought to retail store take back locations for recycling. New York State law requires retail stores to accept a list of clean and dry plastic bags and films for recycling.
  • Fluorescent Light Bulbs and Tubes from residents will now only be accepted during Household Hazardous Waste drop off events. Permits and appointments are required to attend Household Hazardous Waste drop off events. Fluorescent light bulbs and tubes can also be recycled through store take back programs.

The changes listed above are opportunities to reduce costs of operations while still providing needed services by streamlining operations and directing residents to available alternatives. Tompkins County continues to be a forward-thinking community in regards to sustainable waste management.

The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
