Drop-Off Recycling

Waste Management services has provided a large drop-off container for our recyclables. No sorting is necessary, so no items should be in plastic bags. Just drive on up from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Saturday, and drop it in. You will need to take a trip to the County Landfill and a map is provided below. Look for the "recycle here" signs!

Some areas of the County collect with volunteers and make weekly trips. We can all help by bringing recyclable materials when we can. Discuss this with your friends and neighbors: we can all help with a group effort!
