Not sure if an item is recyclable? Find a printable version of Onondaga County’s recycling rules here. Still stuck? Visit to look up your item on a searchable database. You can also email or call OCRRA at (315) 453-2866 for help. Here is guidance for recyclable items we’re asked about often: cardboard boxes, phone books, paperback books, catalogs and magazines and plastic containers.

There are several items that don’t belong in your curbside bin but can be dropped off for recycling, including batteries, televisions and other e-waste, fluorescent bulbs, mercury thermostats and thermometers, leftover paint and plastic grocery bags.

NOTE: empty paint cans, latex or oil based, belong in the trash where they will ultimately be recovered for recycling. Never place empty paint cans in the recycling bin.

Brush Pickup

The 2024 brush collection season begins the week of April 1, 2024! The general brush collection will continue bi-weekly through the week of December 23, 2024. There will be two live Christmas tree pickups during January 2024: the weeks of January 6th and January 20th. Please note that the two January Christmas tree pickups will be for Christmas trees only. If you have a Christmas tree left over from the 2023 tree pickup season you may put it out for pickup when the 2024 season begins in April. 

Town of Manlius residents not residing in a village and who wish to have brush pick-up must be enrolled with the Town of Manlius to receive service. To learn more, visit the Brush Pickup page and contact our Trash and Brush Coordinator, Sharon Lake.
