Household Materials Recovery Facility Opens

On Thursday April 12, 2012, the county’s new state-of-the-art Household Materials Recovery Facility (aka, the H-MRF) officially opened.

The H-MRF, centrally located  on the Grasslands Reservation in Valhalla, offers residents a year-round disposal outlet for those hard-to-get-rid-of household items, including chemicals (pesticides, flammable liquids, pool chemicals and cleaning products), tires, re-chargeable batteries, fluorescent bulbs, Freon-containing appliances, electronic waste,  propane tanks, and confidential documents for shredding.  Prescription medicines can be delivered on the first Tuesday of every month.

The H-MRF is open three days a week, by appointment.  Visit for more information.

The H-MRF is intended to replace the Household Material Recovery Days (H-MRDs) held periodically in different locations around the county.
