Did you know...
Plastic bags, garbage, food, cords and clothing can cause problems during sorting or damage recycling facility equipment. Please keep these items out of your recycling bin.
Do you have overflow paper, cardboard, metal cans, plastic containers, glass jars or cartons? Are you a commercial hauler looking for a local drop-off for these materials? We accept overflow household recyclables and many business sourced recyclables at our facility. Contact us for fees and acceptability.
