*Self-serve paper shredding is open- weather permitting. If it is raining they will be pulled from service.

Please prep your material prior to coming in. Tape and stickers MUST be removed on styrofoam before dropping off. Please see updates on specific materials on each item page before you arrive.

Organics Program:
If you use the organics program, please know we will continue to leave the bin outside of our facility gate for easy access. Please use social distancing measures and respect others in front of you when dropping off your materials. Thank you!

About the Recycling Program

The Recycling Division is actively involved in recycling as mandated by the state’s Select Committee on Recycling and Environment (SCORE). This program is unique in that it is city operated, but funded from a State SCORE grant. Our focus is on residential and small business recycling and our programs are set up to help each with every aspect of recycling and waste reduction.

What’s New?

2020 has brought about some new pricing changes at the facility.
See the list of acceptable recyclables for the latest information.

Download or print our facility brochure; it lists all items accepted at our facility.

You may see some changes to the layout of the Recycling Center. In early January we will be accepting mattresses, appliances and electronics daily. We will no longer host special events for these items. Our site is not able to supply assistance in unloading/loading your items. If you need help we ask you bring it with you. For those requiring help, we will gladly refer you to those resources. This is due to the constant changes within the marketplace and our need to adapt. Our staff will be happy to assist you with these new changes!
