In order to provide as many user-friendly, environmentally sound disposal options for residents of Oneida and Herkimer Counties, the Solid Waste Authority has two facilities: EcoDrop Utica, and EcoDrop Rome. These facilities were designed to work jointly with a wide range of public and private solid waste collection systems by providing convenient disposal options for special or one-time waste, while also providing an option for residents who may not be able to subscribe to a specific collection system.
Acceptable Material: Recyclables, Household Garbage, Trash/Bulk Items, Appliances, Construction & Demolition Debris (C&D), Tires, Yard/Green Waste, Automobile & Rechargeable Batteries, Used Motor Oil, Antifreeze, Propane Cylinders (under 100 lbs.), Electronics/Computer Equipment (Monitors, CPUs, Printers, Toner Cartridges), and Household Hazardous Waste (Utica Facility Only).
