The Recycling Center is a self-serve drop-off site for most recyclable items. We ask that all materials be sorted accordingly prior to arrival, however, if this isn’t possible a sorting table is in place at the Center for users to sort their recyclables if necessary.

The Recycling Center accepts a variety of materials for recycling. Materials must be separated and placed in the appropriate container.
The city currently facilitates trash collection for its citizens by contracting those services through a private company.
