Attention!
Please do not throw your household trash in the recycle containers. We are a "Recycle" facility, not a garbage dump. If you see someone throwing trash in the containers please help us keep our facility open and clean by letting the Attendant know.

We have lots of information listed on signage and fliers to help you know what items we accept, if you are unsure PLEASE see the Attendant.

Thanks to the support of our community since we opened December 2018 we have been able to collect enough recyclable material to extend the life of the landfill by more than 3 years!! 

We do NOT accept Plastic Bags, Bubble Wrap or Styrofoam of any kind.
PLEASE do not bring these items to the Recycle Center as we have no way to recycle them.
