Introduction   

We offer a round-the-clock access to a drop off area at our facility.  This area is intended to allow people to be able to do their recycling at any time of the day, any day of the week.  The only items that can be dropped off in this area are the items we would normally take when we are open.  Anything else dropped off is considered ILLEGAL DUMPING and could have fines attached to that behavior.  Appliances and scrap metals go at the end of the sidewalk and other recyclables can be placed neatly on the sidewalk. 

In addition to our drop off program, the Recycling Center also offers a FREE business corrugated and office paper pick up route, confidential shredding service, and waste audit services.  We also give facility tours and provide a speaker for your meetings and classes.
