Attention Onondaga County residents and businesses.

The Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency (OCRRA) board of directors voted yesterday to add No. 5 plastic containers to its list of mandatory recyclables. No. 5 containers are the wide mouth plastic tubs that are commonly used to house products such as yogurt, butter and cream cheese. Such containers can now be put into the blue bins for roadside pickup.  The addition will save an estimated 500 tons of NO. 5 plastics from being burnt at OCRRA's waste-to-energy plant in Jamesville, NY.
