As part of the solid waste management system, the City of Albany operates a landfill facility on Rapp Road within the city. This landfill, which is fully permitted by the NYSDEC, is anticipated to be able to provide relatively low cost, reliable and environmentally sound waste disposal capacity for the Planning Unit until the end of 2016.

In addition to the landfill facility, the municipalities that make up the Planning Unit typically operate resident's drop-off stations for those residents who do not contract with private waste and recycling collection companies. Some municipalities, including the City of Albany, also facilitate the collection of yard waste, household hazardous wastes and electronics waste.

The Planning Unit is also served by several commercial recycling facilities that accept recyclables from both municipal and commercial collection vehicles. These facilities hold contracts with the Planning Unit municipalities or with the commercial collection companies.
