Mission Statement

The Agency's mission is to provide an efficient, economical and environmentally sound solid waste management system in and for the County of Ulster. The Agency strives to carry out the principles of New York's solid waste hierarchy in its work, emphasizing reuse of materials, reduction of MSW, and the carrying out of an effective and user friendly recycling program, with landfill disposal of MSW that cannot be reused, reduced or recycled. The Agency also holds Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics recycling events for the residents of the County. Municipal drop off centers for disposal of solid waste and recycling developed by the Agency offer County residents a convenient alternative to private collection contracts. The Agency routinely negotiates contracts with area solid waste collection firms for disposal of MSW at its two conveniently placed transfer stations, and long hauls through private contractors the processed waste to permitted landfills in New York State.
