Mayor Madden Announces Electronic Recycling, Paper Shredding, Tire Disposal Event

TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the City of Troy will host a collection event for Troy residents to dispose of electronics, paper shredding, and tires. The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 8th, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the Troy Resource Management Facility (former Alamo site) located across from the Rensselaer County Jail. Registration is required to participate in the event, and is limited to Troy residents only.

Mayor Madden said, “Recycling electronic waste and other non-biodegradable items not only helps protect our environmental, it also reduce costs for solid waste management by diverting these items from local landfills. I encourage residents to sign up for this valuable program to help keep Troy clean and green.”

Registration is first-come, first served. Each participant will be assigned a drop-off time to reduce vehicle traffic at the site. Participants will be required to show proof of residency (driver’s license, utility bill) during the drop-off. Please note: there will be a disposal fee for tires:

  • Bicycle: $1 / tire
  • Passenger vehicle: $5 / tire
  • Other (size dependent): $50 – $100
