How well does your business comply with the law to recycle in Chemung County? We can help! Contact Toni Gardner at for more information.


Chemung County is recycling in a new way!

  • Instead of separating plastic, glass, newspapers, etc. into separate bins, homeowners can now mix all appropriate recyclable materials into one bin for collection.
  • Take note: Plastic bags should not be included in the recycling bin, save and take back to your local grocery store for recycling.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chemung County, in cooperation with the  Chemung County Solid Waste Management District, offers educational materials to both residents and businesses on understanding how to recycle.
