By law, every resident, business and school in Brooome County is required to recycle. Multi- family residences including apartment complexes, condominimums, multi-family units, hotels and motels are required to comply with our local law!
Garbage & Recycling Collection: If you do not have municipal collection the facility manager/landlord is responsible to contract with a private hauler for service.
Recycling Bins: To obtain or replace your 22 gallon yellow curbside recycling bin please contact your private hauler. If you would like to trade in your usable yellow bin for a larger 32 gallon blue bin you must bring it to the Broome County Landfill. There is a limit of one 32 gallon bin per household; additional 32 gallon bins can be purchased for a nominal fee. Develop a collection system: Designate locations where recyclables and garbage will be collected. Make these locations well-known, convenient and efficient. Find out how your hauler would like materials sorted and prepared.Costs: It is possible to lower your costs by recycling!
Educate: Provide recycling education to new residents when they first move in.
Space: It is necessary to supply the proper amount of space for your recyclables.
Place recycling bins in convenient and central areas, such as laundry rooms, trash rooms or mail rooms. Also consider placing them on each floor, or in safe exterior storage areas.
