No Curbside Recycling Service, we can Help!
Residents are encouraged to utilize the 24-hour drop-off bins at the Recycling Center, situated outside the center's entrance. This space is accessible 24/7 and is closely monitored by surveillance cameras. Look for a helpful poster on the container illustrating acceptable and prohibited items. Please refrain from disposing of trash, shredded paper, or plastic bags. Make sure to empty any bags before depositing recyclables. Those found in violation of these guidelines will be contacted accordingly.
Recycle Smart – Keep “Tanglers” (such as Plastics Bags) Out of Your Curbside Recycling Cart!
“Tanglers” is a recycling industry term for any item that gets wrapped around equipment at recycling sorting facilities. You may not realize this, but all the recyclables that you combine in your curbside recycling cart must be separated by material, or they cannot be sold to companies that make products out of them. Items such as plastic bags and stretch film, holiday string lights, electrical cords, rope, garden hoses, clothing and chains are all considered tanglers. These items become tangled on sorting equipment and workers can spend hours each day removing them, causing costly processing delays.
However, some of these items are recyclable at drop-off centers since drop-offs collect items separately and therefore, they can be sent directly to a market without sorting.
The following list are tanglers that can be recycled at drop-offs:
Plastic bags, stretch film and air pillows
Holiday/string lights and electrical cords
Metal chains/ropes/garden hoses
Rope and garden hoses cannot be recycled
