There are also occasional collections run at mobile sites in individual towns. For Monroe County residents with non-industrial hazardous wastes, the service is free. You may bring up to 30 gallons of liquid hazardous waste and 75 pounds of solid hazardous waste per visit. They don't take 55 gallon drums.

Once an appointment is scheduled, it's pretty easy: load up your trunk with your hazardous wastes, drive there, pop the trunk, and they'll carry it away. Quick and efficient.
