The mission of the Department of Recycling and Materials Management is to develop and implement a sustainable materials management strategy for Tompkins County, by utilizing and prioritizing environmentally sound, cost-effective, socially responsible, and safe practices. This is accomplished through coordinated administrative, operational, and educational programs that maximize diversion with the 4R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rebuy) as a focal point.
