What to Recycle at Hamilton

Hamilton has a Single-Stream recycling system. Now, all recyclable items can be mixed together--no more sorting! See this picture to learn more about the Oneida-Herkimer County RecycleOne program. To also learn how we're cutting down on our organic waste, check out our Composting Program.
