Recycling Drop-Off Locations
The District operates drop-off recycling stations throughout its four counties. These locations offer residents an opportunity to recycle at their convenience as locations are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Recently the recycling program transitioned to single-stream recycling. What is single-stream recycling? It simply means that all accepted items can go in the same bin. No more sorting! Accepted items include:
- Aluminum and Steel/Tin Cans-soft drink and beer cans, fruit and vegetable cans, aluminum foil, pie or dinner trays. Please rinse free of debris
- Glass bottles and jars – remove lids and rinse free of debris
- Plastic bottles labeled #1 or #2 – Typically milk jugs, water bottles, soda bottles and detergent type bottles. The bottom of the container will be labeled with a #1 or a #2. Remove lids and/or pumps. Rinse and flatten.
- Cardboard and Chipboard – Cardboard boxes and packaging, food cartons, shoe boxes, tissue boxes, etc. Please flatten.
- Newspapers and Magazines – Items can be bundled in PAPER bags or remain loose before placing in bin
- Household batteries – household batteries can be placed in the designated and labeled box. Household batteries include standard, rechargeable and button batteries. Please do not leave car batteries or PowerWheel batteries.
