EWaste- Electronic equipment can also be disposed of at Utica or Rome EcoDrops.  Visit for more information.  Businesses like Best Buy and Staples also accept electronics and most cell phone stores will take back your device free of charge.

Battery Disposal- Under the “NYS Rechargeable Battery Law” it is illegal to toss rechargeable batteries in the trash in NYS. They contain toxic metals that can be released into the environment.  Rechargeable batteries contained in electronic products must be removed prior to disposal.  Batteries covered by this law include batteries for lap tops, cameras, cell phones, and rechargeable alkaline batteries.  Sherrill residents may bring rechargeable batteries to City Hall for disposal.  Household alkaline batteries should be placed in your trash for disposal. Previously, alkaline battery disposal posed environmental threat because of mercury content. Since mercury has been phased out of battery production, single-use alkaline battery disposal has become safer and such items should be placed with your trash.  Please visit for more information.

Wood Ashes- At the end of Fairway Lane, there is an area for dropping off properly extinguished wood ashes.

Compost- is available for residents to take at the end of Fairway Lane, adjacent to the Waste Water Treatment Plant.
