What Global Recycling Crisis Means for Onondaga County

What the Global Recycling Crisis Means for Onondaga County

The global recycling crisis has hit home. Recycling markets are in an unprecedented free fall, especially for paper products, because China, the country processing the majority of the world’s recyclables, closed its doors to most recyclables (they were getting too much contamination).
In Onondaga County and all over the world, communities are getting less money for their recycling commodities. This means everyone is paying more for recycling and in some places they actually stopped recycling because it was too expensive.

What Does the Crisis Mean for You?


Construction Canal Park Phase IV to Begin

CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN THIS WEEK on Canal Landing Park Phase IV in the area of Feeder Street behind the Town Hall and Brooklea Baseball fields.  

Please note:        the Feeder Street Bridge will be closed during this construction phase. 

There will be no access from this side to the pedestrian bridge nor the Erie Canal trails.    You will need to use alternative access points, such as North Burdick Street entrance to access the Erie Canal trails.

New 211 Service in Onondaga County

Onondaga County has just gone live with 211 service.  The program is described as follows:

Locating basic resources such as food, shelter, employment, or health care may mean calling dozens of phone numbers, then struggling through amaze of agencies and services to make the right connections. The 211 system helps residents find resources by dialing a simple three-digit number.  In July 2000 the Federal Communications Commission assigned the three-digit dialing code 2-1-1 for the exclusive purpose of providing widespread access to community information and referral services.

211 CNY brings together organizations in the community to better serve the residents of five counties: Onondaga, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence. 211 is a helpful starting point for areas with small fragmented rural communities that may not be as connected as bigger cities. Under a simple, easy to remember, three digit phone number, updated information is kept under national standards, and the call or use of the database is free and available 24/7. “

You can dial 211 from your home phone, cell phone or our office phone (Note – you DO NOT need to dial 9 first from the office phone.)
