Roll Off Containers
Construction and demolition waste collection in our Service Area is best served by County Waste and Recycling’s professional roll off service. The bulky, non-compactible waste that construction projects create, such as paper, sawdust, wooden crates and many other materials, are easily hauled away in these high-capacity steel boxes.
Roll off containers can be hand-fed thanks to their large 7-foot rear doors, and will also accommodate forklifts for depositing extremely bulky or heavy materials. Construction and demolition waste collection roll off service containers entails hauling/returning by County Waste and Recycling on a predetermined schedule or on an as needed basis.
Roll off container designs are available as open-top units. A variety of other heavy-duty services are also available for customers that generate large volumes of waste.
Compactor Container Systems
County Waste and Recycling offers several types of high-capacity compactors that are engineered to be left on customer premises and can be hand-fed, chute-fed or hopper-fed.
Commercial waste collection customers with high-volume, low-density waste materials – such as the wet waste of grocery stores and hotels – are often best served by self-contained compactors. Stationary compactors are applicable for high-volume waste materials. Depending on the materials, four to five times as much waste can be handled with a compactor system, thus reducing the frequency of commercial waste collections.

County Waste and Recycling is proud to be a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design waste management company. Each LEED project that we participate in is meticulously tracked and documented ensuring that all reusable and recyclable materials are properly sorted and kept from finding their way into our landfills in order to clear the way for a cleaner, greener tomorrow. Interested in hearing how our LEED Program works?
- Incoming truck with loaded container is weighed at scale house.
- Container is photographed by the driver (displays container #).
- Container is transported to the MRF building and contents photographed prior to sorting.
- Material is then sorted into individual piles based on content i.e.; wood, cardboard, metal, plastic, trash debris, etc…
- Photographs of each pile of sorted debris are taken to show contents.
- Material is loaded onto a bucket loader and weighed individually.
- Once weighed material is placed into individual containers on site and hauled to destination.

Each LEED project is tracked and recorded in its own individual binder. The binder contains copies of work orders for each haul, scale tickets from the date the container arrived at the facility- displaying total weight of combined material and scale tickets for separated material-displaying individual weights. These will be grouped together with black and white photos (color photos are available on site via flash drive). The Colonie Landfill is a non-Hazardous disposal facility – hazardous materials will not be accepted. Driver will reject container on site, or return container to site if there are hazardous contents. Please see our list of prohibited materials.

- Hazardous waste, liquids, paints, oils
