Residents may drop off all recyclable materials accepted in the curbside recycling program at the Recycling Center. These materials include: paper, flattened cardboard, plastic & glass bottles, and aluminum cans. The Recycling Center does not accept single stream recycling, therefore all items should be sorted and placed in the appropriately marked containers. Please do not put plastic bags, large rigid plastics, or any trash into the containers. Other items accepted for free at the Recycling Center include: textiles/clothes, books, small mercury thermometers and thermostats, eye glasses and DRIED latex (water-based) paint. 

Items for Recycling Center drop-off that require a fee are listed on the Schedule of Fees, found at this LINK. NOTE: Mattress drop-off requires pre-payment during the week, as noted on the Mattress Recycling page. 

Trash is not accepted at the Recycling Center.
