Need to recycle before your normal collection day? Then visit the Drop-Off Recycling Center, where we take all the items we pick up curbside, plus many more.
We are located at 1426 Commerce St.. Our Recycling Center hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon.-Fri., and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
All materials must be placed loose in the large recycling receptacles or in clear, see-through bags. If you collect your recycling in black bags, please empty the contents into the large containers and reuse your bag or leave it in a trash cart located near the recycling receptacles.
Please help us maximize your efforts to recycle. Black bags are not acceptable and will not be opened at the processing plant for safety of the personnel sorting the recycling. If they can’t see what’s inside, they don’t open it.
