TROY, NY (September 21, 2021) – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the City of Troy will host the fourth and final household hazardous waste (HHW) collection event for 2021 on Saturday, October 30th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Troy Resource Management Facility, formerly known as the ‘Alamo.’ This event is in partnership with the Town of East Greenbush and the Town of Bethlehem, and is available free to residents of the three communities.
Mayor Madden said, “In response to increased demand and feedback from Troy residents, we increased the number of HHW collection events in partnership with the towns of Bethlehem and East Greenbush. We are pleased to offer Troy residents additional opportunities to safely dispose of hazardous waste materials from their home, and I encourage Collar City families to participate in the final HHW disposal program of 2021.”
The disposal event is a free service available to Troy, East Greenbush, or Bethlehem residents only. Residents wishing to participate in the program will be required to register in advance on the shared municipal website: www.BEThhw.org, or in-person at Troy City Hall, 433 River Street, Troy, NY 12180, Suite 5001. A comprehensive list of acceptable and non-accepted items is available at the above link.
Residents wishing to participate in the event will be required to set up an account and then input a city address (P.O. Boxes will not be accepted as proof of residency) during the registration process. To officially register, residents must fill out the form after creating an account.
Businesses located within the three participating municipalities are also able to make an appointment with the vendor (for the event day) to dispose of HHW items. Please note: all expenses generated by commercial appointments are the responsibility of the business disposing of the items.
If residents have items which aren’t listed in the “acceptable” or “not accepted” lists above, please contact the Recycling and Resource Management Department at [email protected], or call (518) 279-7171, to be connected with the vendor to determine if they are able to assist with proper disposal, and what their fees would be for these specialized items.
