Now Open! - Monroe County ecopark


The ecopark is an innovative partnership between Monroe County and Waste Management of NY that provides county residents with a “one-stop drop-off” to dispose of or recycle certain items. The ecopark is a drop-off facility and, except for household hazardous waste (HHW) materials, residents are responsible for unloading their own vehicle.
