NOTICE!  As of October 2013 We have STOPPED accepting ELECTRONICS and PLASTIC GARDEN CONTAINERS. DO NOT bring these materials to the ReUse and Recycling Center.

The UCRRA in Kingston will accept ELECTRONICS FREE Monday through Friday until 3pm at their 999 Flatbush Road facility by the Rhinecliff Bridge.

Plastic garden containers should be reused, donated to a farm or thrown out.

The New “Rs”: ReDuce, ReUse, RePurpose, ReCycle

Our goal is to reduce waste through an intense diversion process to remove reusable household and construction materials from the waste stream. This goal includes:

  • Outreach and education to promote smart shopping to help people avoid excessive and hard to recycle packaging.
  • Connect individuals wanting to discard goods with individuals looking to acquire those good.
  • Assist other communities to develop similar reuse programs.

The ReUse Center is open to the public 5 days a week for shopping. We can also provide DeConstruction Information (which is still a program in-the-works) as a green alternative to demolition and disposal.  We have information on computer reuse, and a demonstration area on site to learn about composting and edible plants.

NATURAL MULCH AND WOOD CHIPS is available in limited quantity so please call ahead to see what is available. Prices range from $10-$30 a yard. (UPDATE 9/16 only compost is available now)
