Throughout all phases of the COVID19 quarantine the Reuse and Recycling Center has been open. All users MUST have a current PERMIT ON YOUR VEHICLE to use the facility including drop off of brush, scrap metal and leaves. One day permits are $10; this is NOT for recycling. You need an annual permit to recycle.  We take Checks and Credit Cards ONLY. NO CASH.

Since August 2018 the UCRRA (town vendor) has only accepted bottles, jugs and deli tubs. Staff cannot and should not be sorting out unacceptable plastics such as unwashed food containers, straw, drinking cups, tooth brushes etc. Staff will inspect your plastic and go over what items are acceptable before you place them in the container. Items are separated by: mixed paper, cardboard, glass and metal cans/plastic/aluminum.

This is a NYSDEC registered residential facility so there are limits to quantities we can accept. No commercial drop offs of construction material and no loads over two yards. (A yard is 3 X 3 X 3′) One cubic yard of recycling per week.  Commercial permits are for landscapers and non-construction type businesses located in New Paltz ONLY. No non-residential businesses. (Please bring in your tax bill or a printout of Ulster GIS parcel page for your owner occupied property to verify residency).

Anything over two (2) yards should go to the UCRRA facility also located on Clearwater Road.

The New “Rs”: ReDuce, ReUse, RePurpose, ReCycle  In 2011, New Paltz was offered the opportunity to partner with EPA as one of thirteen municipalities nationally to represent EPA Region II in a zero waste initiative. New Paltz has a Zero Waste Action Plan which was adopted by both Village and Town boards leading the way to achieve its zero waste goals.  Zero Waste Action Plan As a zero waste community, we strongly encourage waste reduction, diversion and recycling.
