Oneida-Herkimer SWA: “Recycle Your Holiday Trash”

Utica, NY (WIBX) – The Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority is asking residents to be a little greener this holiday season.

For two weeks after Christmas, people are encouraged to recycle their old wrapping paper, instead of throwing it away with the rest of their trash. This does not include foil and metallic wrapping paper or ribbon.

Also, the Solid Waste Authority is accepting old Christmas trees, broken or unwanted holiday lights and leftover cooking oil from deep fryers at their Utica Station, on Leland Avenue. The station is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m-4 p.m., and Saturdays, 7 a.m.- 2 p.m.

According to the group, between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, the United States produces an extra one million tons of trash per week, and buys enough holiday cards to fill an entire football field approximately ten stories high.

For more information on recycling procedures or drop off times, call the Solid Waste Authority’s Main Office at (315) 733-1224, or visit the group’s website at www.ohswa.org.
