Bag/Tie Your Paper Curbside 

All paper recycled curbside must be either bagged or tied or it will not be collected.  Loose paper can blow out of recycling bins and recycling trucks causing litter in our yards and streets. Bagging paper keeps it dry and helps improve the efficiency of our recycling collection.

Electronics Recycling

It is against the law to dispose of certain electronic devices.  The Recycling & Refuse Authority has a permanent collection site for recycling electronics. Just stop by our facility and drop your old electronics off for free.  Check out our pdficon large Electronics Recycling Guide for details on the program.


Recycle those Plastics

We’ve added Miscellaneous Plastics to our recycling program.  You now have four locations to bring items such as yogurt containers, sour cream containers, clam shell containers, butter and margarine containers, etc.  This is not a curbside program.  All of the program details can be viewed in our pdficon large Plastics Flyer.


Holiday Collection Schedules/Changes

Curbside refuse and recycling collection may be affected by the holidays.  If you are uncertain when to put out your refuse or recycling during the holidays, please see the calendar on our current newsletter or contact your local municipality.
