Recycling Center

EcoDrop Utica

Since 1991, the Recycling Center has accepted recyclables from households, businesses, industries, schools, and institutions in the two-county area. Since opening, the Authority has processed over 1,183,246 tons of recyclable material.

The Authority operates a state-of-the-art single stream processing system. The single stream processing system was constructed in 2011 and operation began in January of 2012. This took the place of the Authority's previous dual stream processing system that was built in 1991.

The Authority is currently accepting all recyclable items- paper, plastic, metal and glass- mixed together. View a detailed list of acceptable material for recycling. Items will continue to be added to the list of acceptable material as recycling markets are secured for additional items.
