    I understand bringing my recyclables to the Monroe County Waste Authority recycling sites is optional and can be a service through my waste hauler. I hereby release the Monroe County Waste Management Authority from any liability associated with any risks involved when voluntarily recycling on site. I have reviewed and read the rules and regulations as a prerequisite to registering for the recycling permit. All information given will NOT be distributed and will be used ONLY by the Waste Authority for recycling location registration purposes and added to the mailing lists for updates.

    I understand*


    If you are uncomfortable with the site registration policy or do not feel safe utilizing our site, please understand that you can arrange to have your Waste Hauler add recycling service to your trash collection. Our sites are a secondary option to the services provided by your waste hauler. Every municipality has an ordinance that requires property owners to have a waste hauler and requires every waste hauler to provide recycling service to property owners. This service can be added with a nominal fee.
