Household Hazardous Waste Program

Event Information

Our next HHW collection will be on October 21, 2023.  Please check back in September for pre-registration and more information.

General Event Details

Once a year, typically in October, the Cayuga County Department of Planning and Economic Development holds a collection event for household hazardous materials.

Details for event date, time, and accepted materials are made available to residents about a month before the event takes place. Due to high vehicle traffic at the event, we have implemented required registration time slots. Once registered, you will find the event location.
