Household Hazardous Waste Collection Dates Announced
Save the dates for our annual collection event. This year our event will be held on April 29-30. Click here to read our event flyer.
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.
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 Electronics Recycling Guide for details on the program.
Miscellaneous Plastics Recycling
There are currently six locations to recycle 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 Plastics Flyer.
Special Materials Recycling

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.
We also write a monthly Recycling Column for the Centre Daily Times. Click here to read the latest.
