Oswego County Residents Should Call Ahead Before Leaving E-Waste at Transfer Stations
OSWEGO COUNTY – Due to processing issues and storage constraints at the County’s solid waste transfer stations, the Department of Solid Waste (DSW) announces that it may need to temporarily suspend its acceptance electronic waste drop-offs at its five transfer stations.
Customers who wish to drop off electronic waste at any County transfer station are asked to call ahead to find out if space is available to accommodate their items for recycling.
“Our vendor for electronic waste recycling has been significantly delayed in making pick-ups, and the transfer stations are approaching maximum storage capacity,” said Oswego County Solid Waste Operations Manager Carl Schmidt. “We understand that the delays are due to warehousing constraints at the vendor’s facility, as downstream processors have been unable to keep up with the supply of electronic waste. The disruption appears to be caused largely by the employee and driver shortages that are currently affecting the logistics industry.”
Schmidt reminds residents that the NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act requires manufacturers to provide free and convenient recycling of electronic waste to individual consumers. People can go to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) website at for additional information about its Manufacturer Takeback Program.
